Year 5 Victorian Day

Recently, Year 5 spent a day learning about the Victorians and experienced what it was like to be child approximately 150 years ago.

The children had a Victorian lesson where they experienced the class work, routines and teaching of an authentic Victorian classroom. We also discovered what punishments you could receive for breaking the rules, including finger stocks and the dunce’s hat!

As well as learning what happened in the classroom, Year 5 also had fun playing some traditional parlour games such as blind man’s bluff and pass the slipper.
