Trip to Dickens World

Key Stage 2 and 3 history curriculum has been about the Victorian era this term. To help bring this to life, some of our students went on a trip to Dickens World to see what it was actually like to be a child in the Victorian age.

They had the opportunity to experience a Victorian school with old-fashioned desks and blackboards, to see where Ebenezer Scrooge lived, to write their Christmas cards and post them using the Victorian invention of the Royal mail and to wander through Victorian cobbled streets.
