12:00pm Thursday 3rd October 2013 in Latest News
The Year 6 class from Springmead School, Beckington, had a fantastic time at Sevington Victorian School recently, when they dressed up as Victorian children and experienced a day in the school life of a farmer’s child in 1836. They were schooled by the rather stern Miss Squires and her sister in the three Rs and then learnt some practical skills; needlecraft and housekeeping for the girls and science and gardening for the boys. The children remained in character with their Victorian names the whole day.
