After our first visit being postponed due to the snow, Primary 7 were able to step back into the Victorian era at The Argory, near Armagh, just before we broke up for the Christmas holidays!
The visit connected with the current World Around Us topic of The Victorians. The children were involved in a most creative day as they found out that so many of our modern day Christmas traditions have their roots from Victorian times. Children made Victorian Christmas crackers with quilled cards and also made a corn angel. The fact that wealthy and poor children had a totally different Christmas 'experience' was also developed over the day.
Our children enjoyed the visit very much, especially the Christmas recitation on the landing of the Argory staircase which culminated in the singing of Away in a Manger.
