Year 5 Spellings List
Otters class learnt about school life as a Victorian Child on Thursday 23rd November 2017.
We started the day by discussing the strict rules children would have to follow in school as well as the punishment that would follow for children who didn't stick to the rules!
We then practiced our writing and maths using slates, with each child solving money based problems using farthings, pennies, shillings and pounds... which is very confusing!
At lunch time, we played some typical Victorian playground games such as hoop rolling, hopscotch, skipping games and marbles.
Finally, in the afternoon, boys and girls were separated so that girls could practice sewing and the boys could learn about technical drawing - creating nets to build a model Victorian School.
