Year 4 - Queens, Canes and Contraptions!

10th September 2021

Today was the Year 4 WOW day for our Queens, Canes and Contraptions topic. We started by making an Owen’s monitor so Mr Feaster could tell us if we were working hard enough. Then we made some ice-cream. Cucumber ice-cream was a popular food in the Victorian times but we made chocolate chip! We watched a video and saw a grand house where the ice-cream was one of their many courses of food. They had to go to an ice-house because electrical freezers hadn’t been invented. In the afternoon, we made a thaumatrope which was a popular toy from the Victorian era. Finally we looked at Queen Victoria and created some portraits of her.
