In Year 1 we loved having our own Victorian school day. The children dressed up like Victorian children and had to pay a penny to come in. The children sat in rows and had to write with chalk on black paper. They practiced many Victorian school traditions, such as: balancing books on their head, singing nursery rhymes and completing exercise drills. In the afternoon we played marbles and did some observational drawings.

Ask your child what their favourite part of the day was.
