Dickens of a History Lesson!
News from Year 2!
Characters from Charles Dickens’ novels walked off the page and right into the classroom for Year 2! The costumed Victorians were special guests for the children who are exploring the lives of People from the Past in their history topic. The characters, who can usually be seen at The Dickens Week Festival in Broadstairs, helped bring learning alive by sharing their Victorian tales with the wide-eyed six and seven-year-olds. In full period dress they revealed their encounters as Dickens’ characters, introducing the books in a child-friendly manner. They also shared their knowledge of how Broadstairs inspired some of the characters and settings.
