Year One – Victorian Day 2019

Year 1 had a great day going back in time and experiencing a day as Victorians.  We particularly enjoyed finding out what it was like to go to school in Victorian times.  The desks were all in rows with the boys on one side and the girls on the other.  We wrote on slates using chalk and did exercises called ‘drill’ in the classroom.  Some children had to wear the Dunce’s hat and some were even caned!  We also got to experience what life was like for rich children and poor children.  We had to work very hard when we were poor children and then we had to eat gruel! When we were rich children we got to play with the old toys, make peg dolls and learnt how to sew.
