We are learning all about Victorian life in Year 2. Today we went back in time and had an afternoon in a Victorian classroom. The teachers were very strict, we couldn’t speak at all, they showed us the cane, and we weren’t even allowed to put our hand up unless we were given permission.
Even though it was very different, we liked some of the rules and are going to stand up in class when we speak as it makes people listen more.
We learnt the rules and used chalk to copy them out.
If we spoke we were sent to stand in the corner.
Whenever an adult walked into the room we stood up.
