P3 had a fantastic day trip to New Lanark yesterday were they found out about life in Victorian times.
They started off with a lesson in the Victorian schoolroom. Mr Gough rang the bell and the P3’s were transported back in time to 1825. After dressing like Victorian children; writing on slates, number work, geography and nature work were all undertaken under Mr Gough’s strict rules. Luckily his class finished off with some lively dancing. After a vote, unsurprisingly, the majority of the class said they preferred school now!
A cinema film and a time travelling ride came next, and a visit round the mill houses and village store concluded our visit. What a busy day!
The children were complimented on their fantastic manners by many of the staff at New Lanark. Well done to all in P3 and many thanks to Mrs Seton and Mrs Woods for joining us on our trip.
