Pupils and their accompanying adults will be transported back in time to 1880 in this role-play session that takes place in our original Victorian Gallery classroom.
From the moment the costumed teacher arrives, pupils and adults assume their roles and must obey the strict discipline standards of school life.
The register will be called and hands inspected before lessons commence. The 3Rs, reading, writing and arithmetic, will be taught and punishments for incorrect behaviour will be administered.
Each session finishes with the teacher returning to his or her friendly modern self and pupils will get a chance to ask questions and discuss the session.
Unfortunately, the Gallery classroom is not accessible for wheelchair users.
Target Age: Key Stage 1 and 2
Duration: 60 minutes
Group size: Maximum 33 pupils
