Moving on… From 1666 to the Victorians!

This week sees a change of Humanities topic in Year 2. We have thoroughly enjoyed learning all about Samuel Pepys and the Great Fire of London but are just as excited to learn about the Victorians. Thursday and Friday will be particularly exciting as everyone in Year 2, including the teachers, will be dressing in Victorian style clothing and visiting Wisbech Castle as well as having a Victorian style school day! 

We are going to be finding out all about the reign of Queen Victoria, who was, until recently, the world’s longest reigning monarch. We will also find out about two amazing women who changed nursing for ever – Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. 

If you are planning a visit to London over half term, the Florence Nightingale Museum is located at St Thomas’ Hospital and is well worth a visit. Click here for more information! If you’re travelling by train, you might want to visit the Days Out Guide website beforehand as you can download a voucher which will entitle you to 2 for 1 entry to the museum with your train tickets! More about that here!
