St Martins visited the Ragged School Museum today. We experienced what it was like to be a child in a Victorian school and it was scary. We have decided we much prefer the rules at school now.
We wrote the alphabet on slate (which some of us found very difficult), we did some maths using Victorian money and had to recite different sayings. The teacher was very strict and we remember to sit up very straight on our benches.
What did you learn about Victorian schools? What did you find interesting about the afternoon? Would you like Miss Perkins too visit St George’s?
