Y2 visit The Charles Dickens Museum

On Tuesday, we travelled back to the Victorian times and had great fun exploring the former residence of Charles Dickens. This was the place in which Oliver Twist was written and saw his actual writing table and chair!  It was amazing to walk around a real Victorian house setting – really bringing our learning to life. Climbing up and down all the floors and seeing the different rooms and their purpose was fascinating.

We all learnt so much. The children’s faces when they realised a chair (commode) was used as a toilet! And did you know Charles Dickens had a pet raven that actually lived in the house?

Well done to everyone for braving the rain to get there! It was worth it!
