Year 1 - olden day school

As part of our topic lessons we have been learning all about what it was like when our grandparents were little.

Today ( 7.3.2018) we experience how school life would have been.

The girls were not allowed to sit with boys.

Our lessons were very different. We chanted our number bonds together. When an adult entered our classroom we showed them respect by standing and greeting them.

In the afternoon we made SPAM sandwiches and the children had the opportunity to taste these. SPAM was a food that was frequently eaten in the olden days.

We also used powder paints for our art lesson. As ready-made paint was not invented.

 We had a great day!
