Victorian School

Bringing History to Life Beyond the Classroom

Banner_Victorian.jpg

A full day of lessons based around an inspection of a Victorian classroom.  Your inspector Mr O.F. Sted will be assuring the appropriate standards are being maintained, with strict discipline.

For a more authentic feel, a hall (preferably) or a classroom should be laid out with chairs and tables in rows.  Copies of each class register will be used for a Victorian registration.  Likewise, photocopies from the provided master copybook will be needed for your children to use.  Each child will also need to bring a two pence coin to pay for their day’s education (all coins will be returned to the class teacher).

 

What might the day include?

 

Victorian school days are a great opportunity for children to dress up.  Although discipline will be strict, the emphasis is on having FUN, using artefacts, role-play, and games to teach history in an engaging and meaningful way.  A Victorian school day can include any or all of these topics:

 

o  Rules in the classroom.

School prayer and religious instruction/assembly.

Reading, spelling and vocal gymnastics.

Handwriting (with dip pens).

Arithmetic with slates.

Physical drill.

History and Geography of the time.

Object lessons using Victorian toys and games.

 

Paper towels may be needed in the event of an ink spillage!
