Y6 Victorian School Day

As part of our topic on Victorian children Y6 have been learning about life for children in Victorian schools. On Monday 30th March we held a Victorian school day. The class followed a Victorian curriculum and the children were expected to dress, work, play and behave as pupils in Victorian times.
