In the final episode Emily is granted a rare treat – a visit to the seaside – albeit in the company of her mother and Miss Stevens. They make the journey by train, the new railway network having made such day trips now possible. 

 

 

At the seaside Emily discovers there is a new list of the things she mustn’t do – 

no sunbathing, no Punch and Judy puppet shows, no taking her hat off. Finally, Emily is allowed to take off her boots and run down to the sea to paddle...and try to enjoy herself like other children.

Discussion: How is a trip to the seaside today different from a trip in the Victorian era?’

Activity: Record some differences in a trip to the seaside toady and in the Victorian time.

Stand behind a chair (girls on one side of room, boys the other). Instructed not to speak and change into suitable attire- raggedy shirt and grey raggedy shorts). Boys change in one place, girls in another.

Marth’s duties https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p05903ct

 

Discussion:Children would leave their homes and live in the big house to work as a servant. Talk about how they would have felt- lonely, tired and scared being away from their families.

Activity:Read the story of the servant boy whilst the children role play in the house. They awaken at 4.30 am (please pretend its this time) and do the duties that he would have done up until midnight! 

 

Servant boy diary:

31st January 1874

Dear diary,

I am sat in our overcrowded room, we are supposed to be asleep but I can’t. It is too cold. It is very difficult to see the paper I’m writing on. I am holding this diary up to the window so that I can see the light from the moon’s reflection. Today has been a miserable day.

 

The master stormed into our room to wake us up at half past 4 this morning. He ordered us outside to wash our face using cold water. It was so cold that the water had turned to ice at the end of the pump. 

Breakfast was water and a small piece of bread left over from last night. I can tell it was old because it was so tough to bite and like rock. 

My next job was to make all the beds. There are 10 bedrooms! All have beds to make and pillows to fluff. I have to hurry up because the fireplaces and the chimneys need to be cleaned out. I don’t like this job because of the soot gets in my eyes and my throat.

 

Reflection:Reflect on what work your children do at home (chores). Do they earn pocket money?

 

4. Write a diary entry in the role of a servant boy or girl

Use the picture prompts to sequence your day. Remember to write in the first person using language if I, my, our, we.

Drawing wth light and shadows is a great idea when the Sun is out. What interesting shadows can you create using small toys?

We are looking at the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo an Italian painter. He was best known for creating imaginative portrait heads made entirely of objects such as fruits, vegetables, flowers, fish and even books.Take a look at the painting called Vertumnus, the Roman God of the seasons. 

Try and name as many fruits, vegetables and flowers as you can see. How does the painting make you feel? Can you say why? E.g I feel happy because…

Activity: 

*Have a go at creating your own Vertumnus. With permission, you could look through old magazines and search for food items to cut out and put together to make a face.

*Look around your fruit bowl and vegetable tray at home and create Vertumnus. Remember to wash your hands before handling the food. Take a photo of your masterpiece for the website.

 Year 1 Curriculum

 

 

Autumn term
Our first topic is 'The Land of Fairy Tales' where our imagination is free to wander. We look at traditional tales through role-play, art, music and all the core subjects. The children enjoy tapping into the characters in the stories through debates and hot seating. Our second topic is 'On The Move' where we learn about various modes of transport and how they have changed over the years. Leading up to Christmas we will be hard at work putting together our Christmas production, which is always a real treat.

 

Spring Term
Here we take off and look at the solar system around us in our topic 'To Infinity and Beyond'.  We research the different planets in Space and their environments.  Watch out for our amazing space models and sculptures!
In our topic 'Clean and Green', we  find out about looking after our environment by recycling many of our everyday packaging. The children have fun turning the class into a mini-recycling centre. We create our own rockets using many of the recycled materials we collect so get ready to launch!

 

Summer Term
Eating breakfast from around the world is what we will be doing. The children make their own healthy breakfast of fruits and cereal. We have a breakfast cafe morning where we invite parents to cook and share their own traditional breakfast from far and wide.


We investigate schools in the past as we turn back the clock into Victorian times in our topic 'Then and Now'.   The children experience the morning drill and strict Victorian teaching for a day!
