Y5's Victorian Experience

Y5 recently spent a day at Reading Museum learning about school and working life in Victorian times. Sitting up straight in lessons with a strict disciplinarian as a teacher and an insight into classroom punishments, was followed with the chance to practise household skills such as beating carpets, ironing and washing clothes.  As you can see from the photographs the children really enjoyed the chance to act the part too!
