CHILDREN at St Stephen’s First School travelled back in time to sample life in the Victorian era.

Pupils dressed in clothing from the period, had their classroom transformed into a dull, dark setting and normal lessons were replaced with with handwriting practise using a slate and chalk, the chanting of times tables and reciting the Lord’s Prayer.

Boys took part in outside drill exercises and had lessons in technical drawing while girls learned the art of embroidery and cross-stitch. Family and friends were also invited into enjoy Victorian activities and a Victorian Tea Party.

The day was part of pupils’ history topic and they will be visiting Forge Mill Needle Museum at a later date.
