Year 3 trip to Sevington Victorian Schoolroom
The Year 3s embarked on their final trip of the academic year to Sevington Victorian Schoolroom.
This is always a wonderful trip to a truly special and beautifully preserved building. It took next to no time to travel back in time to 1897 as we donned our pinafores, flat caps, waistcoats and neck chiefs and travelled deep into the Cotswolds.
On arrival we were given a frosty welcome from Miss Squires and her sister who told us quite clearly that 'children should be seen and not heard'. We all endured handwriting, singing and some arithmetic. Then the boys and girls had separate sessions on making candles and lavender bags respectively. Everyone was beautifully behaved and luckily no one was subject to the cane or any of the other punishments endured by Victorian children.
Lunch consisted of bread rolls and cheese with flapjacks and apples for afters; some of us went a little hungry!
We were then given some time to play with authentic Victorian toys and it wasn't long before we were transported back to 2017 and boarding the coach once again.
We feel very lucky to have the opportunity to experience such a wonderful resource to help immerse us in a different time period. It is truly a special place and a brilliant time was had by teachers and students alike.
