    Y6 Victorian topic

    30 January 2019 (by KHamilton)

    As part of our Victorian topic we planned our very own Victorian experience. In order to make it authentic we read the schools log books from 150 years ago to find out what went on in our school.

    We also read books from the library, watched films and searched the internet. Finally, we put all our ideas together to create a realistic school day.

    Victorian day was an interesting experience for all of us. It was a bit funny at times because the teachers were so strict but it was hard work too. Highlights included writing on slate boards and writing with quills. Trying out different punishments was interesting but we wouldn’t like to keep them. The back straightener and finger lock might get painful!
