2W become Victorians for the day.

On Monday 9th October, Year 2 went to visit Beaumanor Hall to take part in a Victorian Childhood day. Everybody came to school in their fantastic Victorian costumes, including the teachers! We had a superb day and learnt about the origins of the Hall and the family who lived in it. We then experienced life as a servant, working in the cellars, learnt why you needed a servant to get dressed if you were a rich Victorian, male and female. Then what life was like upstairs in the Hall. In the afternoon, the children joined a Victorian school with a very strict teacher complete with real ink and quill pens, dunce’s cap and cane! We had a superb day and the children behaved excellently. We would like to thank Mrs Mellors and Mrs Phoenix for helping us on our visit.
