Year 6 @ Holy Family

Class of 2017/18

Victorian Day

Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-8-2017

This term’s topic dress up day was a Victorian School Day.

Year 6 dressed the part (as did the teachers) and we transformed the classroom into a Victorian(ish) one.

The day began with a very fierce Miss Linton doing drill on the school yard.  Our Victorians had to limber up and exercise to keep themselves warm in the cold and get their bodies ready for the day.

Next was inspection and class rules (as well as learning our Victorian names).  Thank goodness the cane was left in Victorian times!

The lessons were the three R’s: Reading Writing and aRithmetic.  Some of us had the skill to use ink pens – others had to move back onto chalk and slate.

We also looked at some geography as we covered the Victorian Empire.

Did you enjoy the day?  What did you learn?
