YEAR 1 TRIP TO THE VICTORIAN SCHOOL MUSEUM
On Tuesday we were delighted to have a chance to visit a Victorian school. The children dressed up and had a chance to experience life as a Victorian child. The teacher was amazing and treated the children as if they were back in time. She checked their hands for cleanliness and then they were able practice their writing skills using a slate and pencil. They then completed some Maths, adding pence and farthings. This was followed by some writing with an ink pen and blotting paper. They had a great time and learnt the phrase “children should be seen and not heard”. We also were able to play with some Victorian toys and learn about life without plastic and batteries. The children could see how the toys moved by winding them up or spinning them.
