|Lining up ready to walk to the Victorian classroom. |
Of course the boys were first in the line.
|The "scary" Victorian teacher Miss McNulty.|
|Standing behind their chairs waiting to be told to sit down.|
|Sitting down in silence.|
|Explaining our classroom rules. One of the hardest to follow was for |
all children to write with their right hands.
|Learning to use an ink pen.|
|Mastering the spinning top.|
|Drawing pictures of what we looked like in our victorian costumes.|
|Can you get the ball in the cup?|
|Listening to the Victorian Teacher's diary. We heard how a child|
was puched into the cesspit and became very ill.
|Inspecting the children's hands. Cleanliness was very important|
to the Victorians.
|Hearing all about life working in the mill.|
|Learning how to use the carbolic soap.|
|Being taught how to spin the top by a master.|
|Writing using a slate and slate pen.....the squeaky noise was horrible.|
|Oh no what has this pupil done to wear the dunce's cap.|
|Tasting the mill workers porridge.|
|Maths the Victorian way.|
|That teacher looks cross and she has her cane to hand!!!|
|Receiving his punishment very bravely !!!|
(please note no children were harmed in the making of this reconstruction !!)
|Copy writing forming each letter separately then using the blotting paper.|
It realy was the most fantastic day and the children were buzzing with all their learning. Thank you to all parents who helped with such fantastic costumes.
