Year 6 turned in to Victorian children for a day today on their visit to Reading Museum. They all looked quite authentic thanks to some very creative parents and Primark!
During the morning they were transformed into a well-disciplined class who learned to "speak when spoken to" and "be seen and not heard". A few children stepped out of line and had to wear the dunce's hat, be caned, wear a back straightener and hand restraints. Those were the days! Many children returned home with blue fingers as a result of writing with ink pens in Victorian copy books. I think all the children enjoyed the experience for a day but that was enough.
In the afternoon we looked at some Victorian artefacts and how they were used by servants in a rich person's house. As you can see Bonnie and Jonathan made a lovely couple.
Many thanks to the parents who came on the visit and also dressed up for the day.
Dunce for a day!
For hand fiddlers.
Sit up straight now!
Cheer up girls!
