Year 5 Victorian Day

Year 5 experienced at first hand the strict discipline and formal learning of a Victorian school on Monday. As part of their topic learning, they came to school in costume, marched and sang the National Anthem and recited times tables and poetry. They also learned about dictation and the complications of adding in 'old money'. The children threw themselves into role (as did the teachers, of course) - and we can confirm that no real caning took place, although the dunces' caps were definitely used.
