Year 6

Victorian Day

08  Nov  2016

Year 6 experienced a Victorian Day on Monday 7th November. It started in the playground, where they were separated into boys and girls and they received a hand check. All children had to be silent and stand when answering questions. They also had to stand if an adult entered the room. Some children, who were disobedient received the cane! Boys were taught Technical Drawing, whilst the girls improved their sewing skills.

In the afternoon, Rainbow Theatre provided the children with an insight into the lives of poor children. From the children's market, where they were selected for jobs, to children who were blinded deliberately to become better beggars! They slaved in mines and were pulled out of smoking chimneys. Ask them what a 'tosher' did? Or what a 'purefinder' collected?
