LITTLEHAM Primary School Year 6 children have dressed up as Victorians and experienced a school day in their 'Victorian' classroom.They took it in turns to be the teacher with subjects such as the three Rs (reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic).During the lessons, an 'inspector' visited the classroom when both children's and teachers' faces turned pale with fear!There were scowls and shouts from the 'inspector' but it was successful!Pupils enjoyed the occasion and dressing up gave them a real feel for the era.Some children's comments ... "It was very exciting but terrifying at times." ... "Even though it was sometimes quite funny, if it had been in real Victorian times, I wouldn't have liked to have been there." ... "I would really like to have been a Victorian child, but I would have tried to avoid the cane."At the end of the term, pupils will be visiting the river port of Morwellham Quay to find out more about life in Victorian times.
