Charlie the Shoe Shine Boy - A journey into the past.

On Thursday 16th September, the Year 5 children were transported back to the Victorian times through an exciting performance by actor, Oliver Naylor.


Oliver took the children on a tour through a Victorian market and introduced them to a number of interesting characters. A highlight of the performance was ‘meeting’ Mr. Olivetti, the owner of a toy shop in Victorian England. The children were shown a variety of toys and some even had the chance to have a go with a cup and ball or a spinning top.  


The performance helped the children to understand the importance of the Victorian era and provided a perfect starting point for their Topic work on the Victorians.
