YOUNGSTERS at St Stephen’s Primary school in Kearsley got into character for a Victorian-themed day.
The Year Three pupils have been learning about the Victorian era this half-term, and brought that learning to life with a day of dressing up and specially organised lessons.
Deputy head and Year Three class teacher Sheila Savage said: “This was the ideal way to bring all the learning they have been doing to life. The kids really got into character and had a lot of fun — I had to be extra strict as part of my character as a Victorian school mistress and they all found that quite funny.”
The class also had a surprise visitor in the shape of parent Lisa Chadwick, who arrived in class, dressed as a Victorian era horse rider and explained all about the sport of equestrianism during Queen Victoria’s reign.
