History was brought alive at Keep Hatch Primary School when pupils experienced life as a Victorian school child.
Year Five pupils dressed up and took part in reading, writing, arithmetic and spelling lessons all taught in a Victorian manner at the school in Ashridge Road.
The children had to follow Victorian school rules – and discovered breaking them led to the dunce hat being worn.
Pupil Mia, nine, said: “It was a fun day, but it was quite hard work being a Victorian child.”
