Victorian Day in Year 5

Today both classes in Year 5 have been taken back in time to the age of the industrial revolution and when schools were very different.

Both classes had to relive a Victorian lesson with a real Victorian teacher.
Not all children had an education during the Victorian period as they had to work at an early age to support their families. However, changes in the law meant that by 1870 all children under 10 had to attend school.
