Victorian fabulous finish day

Year 1 had a fantastic fabulous finish day being immersed into the world of the Victorian era and what it was like for children in the past. 

As soon as the children arrived into the class they were greeted with a new Victorian name (unless they already had one) and a very strict teacher.

The children were shocked to learn that children used to have punishments that were not very nice:

If a child answered a question wrong they used to wear a Dunce cap to embarrass them in front of the class!

The children also practised writing without a pencil and paper. Victorian children would use slate to write with.

We all agreed that we much prefer how schools are today! The children were so excited to go tell their grown ups what they had learnt.
