We really 'enjoyed' our Victorian Day in school. It was quite different from the school day that we are all used to.
We had to pay 2p to enter the classroom and all children were inspected for cleanliness. Those children who were not clean enough have to wash their hands again.
We started the day with assembly, where notices were given, we said the Lord's Prayer and then finished with the National Anthem. After assembly we started our morning lessons. We learnt about the three R's, reading, writing and arithmetic. Children had to behave beautifully and make sure their work was as neat as it possibly could be, we wrote with chalks and blackboards so it was quite hard not to be messy. Luckily we didn't have any lazy children, but for some strange reason they all wanted to wear the 'Dunce's Hat'.
After lunch the boys went to learn some very important DT skills with Mr Willett, whilst the girls learnt how to sketch Queen Victoria and weave with Mrs Jerome.
The day was a great success and the children were fantastic, really getting into the spirit of Victorian School!
