Virtuous Victorians in Year 5

Virtuous Victorians in Year 5

Year 5 experienced a traditional afternoon tea, first enjoyed by Anna, 7th Duchess of Bedford, in the 19th century - it was just too long 'til dinnertime! The children sampled cucumber sandwiches and a selection of cakes, washed down with old fashioned lemonade. After their tea, the children joined in with traditional Victorian parlour games, such as 'Pin the tail on the donkey' and 'Blind man's buff'. They thoroughly enjoyed this novel way to learn some Victorian traditions.
