We would like you to start your Victorian Research.  This can be completed over the holidays and needs to be returned on Friday 5th January.

Try and answer the following questions. Answer them in detail and get pictures and examples of each if you can. In the past some people have completed a side of a page for each question [although you can do more or less but if it is less than one page it should be more precise but just as detailed]. The answers can then be joined together to provide a project booklet of your answers. Remember to present and decorate the whole thing to really give it the Christmas feeling. Make this sheet the contents for your research. [Feel free to add any other information you may find on a Victorian Christmas]

  1. Who designed and sent the first Christmas card?
  2. Who invented the Christmas cracker?
  3. What is the traditional Christmas lunch? What did the Victorians eat?
  4. When did the tradition of the Christmas tree start and who brought it to Britain?
  5. Name 4 Victorian carols.
  6. Who dressed Father Christmas in red and what did he look like before?

Homework to be handed in by Friday 19th January

Question and Answer Interview

Our Learning Journey Clockwork involves thinking about Britain since the 1940’s. For Literacy this week I want you to work your parents and grandparents. Yes they must get involved in the homework!

I want you to ask them a few questions about life when they were young. So it may be what TV programs did they watch? What games did they play? What did they have for school dinners? What brands of food did they eat? What sweets do they remember having? Who were the famous footballers, film starts etc. when they were young? Set this out in the form of question and answer:

Mum:

What toys did you play with?

We had a doll called Tiny Tears…

It would also very helpful for our display if you have a photograph/picture of the person that you have interviewed from the time they are discussing in their memories.
