Year 5 go back in time to the Victorian era

In their local history topic, Year 5 are currently doing a project on Victorian schools in our area. 5 Indigo had a session in the museum at Bruce Castle to give them an idea of what the schools in Victorian times looked like (Bruce castle itself used to be a school). The class dressed up in Victorian clothing, did some writing on chalk boards and used old ink pens. Then they had an outside session looking at the history of the building, it was a fantastic trip!
