What was Christmas like over 100 years ago?
This half-term the children are going to be immersed in all things Christmas! We are going to be learning about where our Christmas traditions come from and if the Victorians celebrated Christmas in the same way we do, over 100 years ago!
In English, the children will be making Christmas crackers and writing instructions for other people to follow and also writing a diary entry as a Victorian child on Christmas day. They will look at the story of A Christmas Carol which was written by Charles Dickens.
In our Learning Challenge lessons, we will be making Christmas crackers and traditional Victorian Christmas decorations. We will learn about various traditions such as Christmas cards, Christmas trees, Christmas carols and more!
In our Learning Challenge lessons, we have been making Christmas crackers using a template. Once they are finished, we are going to write about how to make them! Today, we started off by writing an introduction about Christmas crackers!
