The Year 2 visit to the Victorian Classroom was a very enjoyable and very effective way of supporting our work in history as part of our Sheffield topic. The children had the opportunity to experience life as a Victorian child through dressing up and role play. They all took their parts very seriously and were a credit to the school. Having the names of real Victorian children who attended Springfield School really helped the children to get in to character. They loved playing with Victorian toys and experiencing washing clothes as a Victorian. The children are very pleased we now have washing machines.
We would welcome any feedback from parents, helpers and children about the visit.
Feedback from parents:

"*** thought his daddy was at school in the Victorian era! He thought that it looked very authentic and enjoyed it very much. The teacher was very nice too and good at acting"
"*** enjoyed this trip. Her favourite part was the washing!"
"*** enjoyed this trip very much, even though she thought Miss Sharp was very scary. She really like being the class fidgit until she has to wear the finger stocks! She is glad that school is no longer like this! I thought the visit was fantatic and a wonderful opportunity for the class to get a taste of school life in Vicorian England. Miss Sharp was really good but she was very scary! Thank you for the opportunity to go along too!"
