This project teaches children about their own school and locality, both today and in the past. They will compare schooling in the Victorian era to their experiences today. A community member who knows the school well will talk to the children about the school’s history, including the date of its construction and other important events. They will use photographs, artefacts and first-hand accounts to help illustrate these and encourage the use of common words and phrases related to the passage of time in the conversation. We will discuss Samuel Wilderspin's views and how they were different from the views of others in Victorian times. The children will be encouraged to read the biographical information about Samuel Wilderspin and partake in role-play of a Victorian classroom. 

This project has the following companion projects: 

  • Street Art (Art and Design) 
  • Chop, slice and mash! (Design and Technology)
  • Plant and Animal parts (Science)
