Victorian School Day Y2 2018

Today the children got to experience what it would have been like to be a child going to school during the Victorian era.

They came into the class and were greeted by very strict teachers. They recited the Lord’s prayer and could only sit once told. In Arithmetic, they recited their times tables and in English they practiced their handwriting. In the afternoon, boys were sent out to play Victorian sports whilst the girls cleaned and cooked food for the boys.

The children all participated with great enthusiasm- even when getting the cane! However, most children decided that they prefer school how it is today and wouldn’t want to travel back in time!
