The Year 5 children did a fantastic job on Friday when they delivered their assembly on The Victorians. The children have been studying The Victorians this year as part of their creative work and have been learning all about this amazing era. They used roleplay to highlight how tough life was for children in those days. They focused on one girl in particular – Lizzie Dowson – a girl who actually lived in the Victorian times in the Ouseburn Valley, Newcastle. They followed Lizzie’s life as she went to school, saw a Punch and Judy show and went to work in the lead factory where she died. They followed this with a court case where the children debated who was to blame for her death. Great job Year 5!
