Tuesday class assembly

Just a reminder that if children have certificates, medals etc to show the class, then they should bring them into school on a Tuesday.
We love to share and celebrate the children’s achievements and this is our special time to do this.

This week we celebrated success in swimming, karate and even a Blue Peter badge!


Life for a Victorian Child

“Epic” “Awesome” “Brilliant”
were just some of the phrases the children suggested we wrote on the museum evaluation sheet!

As you can see from their responses, the children really had a most enjoyable morning at the museum in Abington Park.

The highlight for all of us was the delightful story of Annie, a seven year old girl, who worked as a maid during Victorian times. She hoped to see Queen Victoria when she was visiting Northampton but…..

The children can tell you the rest of Annie’s story.

Katherine, the museum guide, brought the story to life beautifully by letting the children experience the chores Annie had to perform as a maid in a rich persons house.

Katherine left us with a question, which would you prefer to do- go to school or work like Annie did?

Here are some photos showing the jobs a small girl like Annie had to do to earn her penny a week.
