beech class 9th March 2018
What have we been learning this week?
We’ve had lots of fun in Beech this week with two theme days. Today we celebrated World Book DAy by dressing as characters from stories we enjoy. On Wednesday, we had a Victorian School day, with both children and adults wearing period style clothing. We were very interested in learning about the lessons that the Victorian children took part in, although we felt that they weren’t as exciting as lessons in our modern school. Lessons included spelling practice with sand trays, slates or copy books; reciting times tables; reciting a poem and nature study. We also had time to check the cleanliness of everyone’s finger nails and to play with hoops, hopscotch and skipping ropes to gain a flavour of Victorian playtimes.
