Queen Vic

Although we haven't done any specific study on Queen Victoria, Miss 6 has read plenty about her in the books we've borrowed. I hadn't realised the queen would capture her interest.

She has these two small kitten soft toys, one black and white and one brown. She created a game where one was Queen Victoria and the other Prince Albert! Hilarious. And she explained to me that the black was, "widow's black because she grieved for 40 years", and the white paws represented the white funeral the Queen ordered for herself.

She wanted to mess about with her markers one night and drew the Queen herself, white cap, and the long black part is a corset apparently.

We watched the first 2 parts of The 1900 House - a family is chosen to live as Victorians would have lived.

Grabbed two more library books for her, which she enjoyed.

Victorian Britain
History Snapshots: The Victorians

We listened about 12 year-old Martha's days as a maid.

Thoroughly enjoyed Timewatch: Young Victoria. I had to mute a few bits that weren't age appropriate but otherwise it was very good. After I asked for a break around halfway, I had a hovering 6 year-old that had me giving in and watching it to the end.

After that we got this;

and then off she dove into her dress-up box to play being the queen herself.
