A Victorian Day at the British School of Marbella saw pupils experience a school day with a difference last week.
Years 5 and 6 dressed up in Victorian style clothes for the event while a ‘Dunce Hat’ and the cane also made a return – all in jest of course!
Classrooms had their desks arranged in straight rows, boys and girls were separated and there were hand and nail inspections.
There were also times tables recitals and handwriting practice, while the interactive whiteboard was replaced by a chalkboard.
Headteacher Sian Kirkham, said: “The day was a great success and the children received an authentic Victorian school day experience. The relief was evident once the day was over, with a few children coming to school the following morning checking we were not still in Victorian times.”
The special day of leaning was designed to spark their interest in their latest topic about the Victorians in Humanities this term.
