P7NG Victorian ‘Chimney Sweep’ Drama

16th Nov 2018

In class we have been learning about what life was like for a chimney sweep in the Victorian era. We listened to some audio clips on the BBC School Radio website about a young boy called Charlie who had a hard life working for his master for 3 pence a day. Then we had a go at creating our own chimney sweep drama in small groups. We tried to put on cockney accents and act out a potentially dangerous situation...what would happen if the sweep got stuck in the small chimney? It turns out we have some nice masters and some not so nice ones in P7NG!
