Class 2 Learning about the Victorian school

25th June 2021

Yesterday Class 2 learnt about schools during the Victorian times as part of their ‘Long, long ago’ topic. Mr Sapsford set up a Victorian classroom in the outdoor area and the children enjoyed role playing as Victorian school children, with Mr Sapsford pretending to be a Victorian teacher. The children used quills and ink to write, and learnt that in the past, if you made a mistake, you would have been 'given’ the cane, or put in a wicker basket or made to wear a dunce’s hat!

The children loved the experience and decided that school is much more fun nowadays!
