P2C Victorian Topic

P2C are really enjoying learning about the Victorians. Before the holiday we were learning about Queen Victoria and her life. We made comparisons between objects from then and now. This week we have been investigating some important inventions from the Victorian era and thinking about how they have impacted our lives today, for example, the telephone and the postage stamp. We have been inspired by the Victorians and today we started to think about what we would invent if we were inventors. We put on our inventor hats and have come up with some great ideas. Later this week we will create models of our inventions. Thank you for all your junk donations so far.

P2b Victorian Inventions

Primary 2 are learning about important inventions from Victorian times which have had an impact on modern day life. Today we learned about Alexander Graham Bell and made our own telephones using paper cups and string. We had lots of fun testing them out! We also learned about Samuel Morse, who invented the telegraph system and Morse code. We wrote our names and a short message for a friend to decode.
