The Very Elegant Victorian Workshops for Ks1 & Ks2

The workshop leader will arrive at your school with her Victorian classroom pop-up theatre. The pupils will meet a Strict Victorian Teacher Ms Grimm, she will instruct them on how to behave in her classroom.

Dressed in Victorian costume she will perform short, fun scenes and encourage the pupils to take part. They will be chimney sweeps, cotton factory workers and get a sense of working down the coal mines. Then will show the children how to improvise their own version of the historical events and recreate them!

And if that wasn’t enough, the pupils get to meet a parlour Maid who is full of gossip about the household she works in. She will show them how to fold sheets and do other tasks that need doing around the house.
