Y1 Trip to the Victorian Classroom

posted 12 Dec 2019, 07:05 by Lynsie Tuplin

On Wednesday 4th December Year 1 enjoyed a fantastic trip to the Victorian Classroom in Barnsley.  It was such a lovely learning experience for all the children taking them back in time to what going to school was like in the Victorian times.  Miss Sharp greeted us outside the old Victorian classroom all dressed up in her costume and we had to line up in a girls line and a boys line.  When we went into the classroom we were able to use all of our 5 senses to really feel what it was like for a child going to school in those times.  We took part in an actual lesson learning reading, writing and arithmetic but using chalk boards and ink pens and learning old Victorian phrases that were said during those times.  We all had a wonderful day and Miss Sharp emailed to congratulate all the children being fantastic on how they all coped brilliantly and behaved superbly, which was definitely a credit to St Mary’s Primary School.
