Year 1 Victorian Day
Year 1 spent the day learning about what it was like to go to school in the Victorian era. They looked at our own Victorian School building and lined up in a girls and boys lines to enter school. They had a cleanliness inspection, said prayers, had a scripture and poetry lesson. In the afternoon there was time for drill and an object lesson about a plant. They worked with chalk and slates as well as pen and ink. This was much harder than it first looked. Some children made mistakes and had to wear the Dunce's Cap or receive the cane!
