St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

A Voluntary Academy

Trusting in God; Creating Tomorrow; Helping Today



Our topic for this term is called Revolution! This is all about the Victorian period in England from 1837-1901. We will learn about Queen Victoria, her life and impact on England life then and today. We will learn about the stark differences in the lives of the rich and the poor and the comparisons in the lives of children then and our lives today! We will then finish by looking at the legacy the Victorians left on our lives today. 


Our Launch Day

For our Launch day, we completed lots of fun Victorian activities including making a Victoria sponge, creating Victorian silhouette portraits of ourselves, trying out Victorian style handwriting and making some Victorian toys such as peg dolls and thaumatrope!
