Blackboard, Easel and Dunce's Cap - A Day in a Victorian School

Year 6 left their brown uniforms at home today as they took a step back into the Victorian era.
Donning their Victorian clothes and clasping an authentic Victorian penny in their hands, they stood nervously awaiting drill before they were allowed into the building.

Once inside, after a very thorough inspection of hands, shoes and fingernails, they were instructed in the 3Rs.

After a brief lunch (not gruel) the children got to write with real nibs, ink and blotting paper, worked together to produce a portrait of Queen Victoria and worked on their needlework skills.
