Back to Victorian time…

Maple and Rowan classes had a fantastic time today learning about what life would have been like at our school when it was first built… in Victorian times!

We practised using a slate to write with and even wrote using a dip pen and ink!  Everyone had a chance to investigate old photos, old books and Victorian artefacts using great historical skills.  We were very impressed with the questions that the children asked and they all enjoyed the experience…although they may be relieved to get back to modern day writing as the intricate Victorian style was quite a challenge!
