Years 3 & 4 Victorian workshops

11th December 2017
Year 3/4 had a very special visitor today, none other than the famous Victorian author Charles Dickens!
 
He travelled back in time to ask us to help him with his latest novel which is going to be set at Christmas time. He taught us all about Victorian Christmas traditions and we played some Victorian parlour games. Our favourite was human charades, where we had to use our bodies to make different objects including a Christmas tree, a cracker, a present and a turkey.
 
We then helped him to come up with the story for his new book about a mean man who doesn't care about Christmas but learns to change his ways after being visited by three ghosts. Mr Dickens has gone back to the Victorian times to write it and we can't wait to read it.
