The much-awaited trip took place this week to mark the end of our history topic - The Victorians. Year 6 enjoyed a lively debate conducted by Baroness Lehzen herself, about whether Queen Victoria was prepared well enough to become the monarch of Britain. The thrill of walking in the footsteps of this great figure saw Year 6 brimming with enthusiasm and hungry for further learning.
Year 6 developed their map reading skills through comparing old maps with new. Using maps from the Victorian Era and current day, they located buildings which were once workhouses. On the trail, several skills were achieved: Children learned the importance of orientation in order to understand direction. They compared old map symbols with new. They also had to track their journey and measure the distance they walked using scale. On the walk, interesting observations were made about road changes and layout and the possible reasons for this.
