Stepping back in time

Today our Year 4 children have been transported back in time to the 1870’s to experience what life would have been like as a Victorian school child.

They are being taught the 3 R’s Reading, aRithmetic and wRiting, as well as getting to grips with writing on a slate using chalk.

However, there is time for a chance to play with toys such as the stick and hoop, ball and cup as well as spinning tops but it’s not all fun and games, as there are drills to complete and a dunce’s hat to avoid.
