Victorian School Day
Year 5 on April 3rd 2019
Year 5 were transported back to 1889 and Victorian Schooling!
The day started with a hand and hygiene inspection, closely followed by arithmetic and learning our times tables by rote. Then we went outside for some drill practice. After play, the children practised their Victorian style handwriting. We also did some geography – naming countries and their capital cities. Regularly, throughout the day, the children would repeat back poems and some suffered the cane!
So, do the children prefer Victorian style schooling or todays education system?
