Year One enjoy a Victorian Christmas experience
Year One travelled to Lancaster to enjoy a traditional Victorian Christmas experience at Judges’ Lodgings.
They were treated to parlour games with the Governess, helping Mrs Bridges the cook to make the Christmas puddings, a lesson in the school room with the teacher making cornucopias and the visit was topped off by a very special encounter with Father Christmas. He told the children all about the items which Victorian children would have received in their Christmas stockings; an apple for good health, an orange for something special, salt for good luck, a piece of coal for warmth and a coin for wealth.
The visit finished with Christmas songs around the tree before Father Christmas waved them goodbye.
Year One are full of Christmas spirit and ready to enjoy the festivities over the next couple of weeks.
