‘Victorian Classroom’ in 3C

We went back in time and experienced a ‘Victorian Classroom’. We practised the 3Rs on our slates and learned about some of the ways children were encouraged to sit up straight, ignore distractions and to not make mistakes!

Our teacher, ‘Miss Watkins’ was very strict and fierce!
Children should be seen and not heard!
If you fidgeted, you had to wear finger stocks…
Cleanliness is next to Godliness!
Copper Plate handwriting practice.
Daily ‘drill’ to keep fit and strong.
Straighten that back and sit up straight!
