Our year 1/2 pupils had a wonderful time during the Victorian School Day, on 17th October 2023.
Both Willow and Fir classes spent the day as Victorian children. Throughout the day, we were joined by volunteers from Belper North Mill, who led a Victorian School lesson. We were taught all about a Victorian family living on Long Row and brought in Victorian artefacts for us to handle and learn about. We also learned sewing and weaving skills, made peg dolls and played with old toys. Outside we cleaned our tyre chimney, built chimney stacks, shined shoes, scrubbed the steps and played traditional games such as hoops, hopscotch and marbles.
It was a great experience for everyone.
