Primary 7

Primary 7 Argory Trip

On Tuesday Primary 7 stepped back into the Victorian era at The Argory near Armagh.

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 cards using a technique of quilling 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.

The day was finished with Mr McCambley playing the organ and everyone singing 'Away in a Manger' on the landing of this beautiful Victorian house.
