Victorian School Day
As part of our topic on the Victorians Year 5 held a Victorian school day.
We all came into school pretending to be Victorian children and sat in rows.
We had Victorian school teachers and we had to call them Sir or Ma'am! We wrote on slates and kept our hands under the desk.
We even saw what some people had to wear – a dunce's hat!
We had to show our skills in recitation, times tables and handwriting.
We also did drill and had to stand whenever a teacher entered the room.
