Primary 6 had a fantastic visit to the Victorian Schoolroom this week to find out all about education during the Victorian era. We experienced what it was like to be taught ‘the 3 Rs’ (reading, writing and arithmetic) as well as discovering some of the behaviour management techniques that were used to make sure that children were ‘seen and not heard’.
After that, we went to the museum area to see what daily life was like around 1900. We learned about eating and drinking, keeping warm and keeping clean in Victorian times. Life certainly seems a lot easier for us nowadays!
