Victorian School Day 14.12.11

Victorian School Day 14.12.11

 

 The classroom was set out in rows. When the children arrived , they had to stand behind their chair. The boys sat in one half of the room and the girls sat in the other half. The day began with registration and a prayer. Then the children sat down and began handwriting practice in a cursive style. The children worked in silence, which was very peaceful for me!!!!! At half past nine the children experienced a Victorian workshop and they all had to help complete some chores to get the house ready for Christmas. After playtime on the yard, we had a special visit from Queen Victoria. The girls curtseyed and the boys doffed their caps. She answered lots of questions and ate a slice of Victoria sponge. So did the children! The children then chanted the 10 times tables several times. They wrote them out on a piece of black paper and a piece of chalk. After lunch the children had a history lesson, they looked at the family tree of Queen Victoria to the present day Queen Elizabeth. The classroom got darker and darker as the day progressed. I lit candles to provide some light. The children then had some free time to use the slates, the Victorian toys, the dunces cap, the clogs, the ink pens etc. The children had a brilliant day and they were a credit to you as they looked the part in their costumes. Thank you!!!!
