Scotland Street School

Primary 6 went to a trip on Thursday the 3rd of March. We went to Scotland Street School for our Victorian topic. When we went in we had to go to this cloakroom that looked like a jail to hang our stuff up.

We went to a museum and it had what they used in the victorian times in the classroom. We then went to the gift shop and there were lots of toy,  sweets and other stuff to buy.

Then we had our lunch in the cookery room. After we had our lunch two women came and one took the boys and the other took the girls. They took us to a changing room to get changed into Victorian school clothes. The women were very strict. The person that took the girls had shouted at the top of her voice BE QUIET  because we were too noisy. Then we got told to stand in a line smallest to tallest and walk with our hands by our side. When we got to the classroom the teacher walked out and told us to come in. We sat on very uncomfy chairs.

Before we started class we had to say a prayer. Then we had a maths test and you had to answer very quickly. Then we got slates and we had to write on our name and when we were born. Then we got paper and ink wells. We had to write our name on them and the spelling words that we got.  After the class had finished he asked if we had any questions. Andrew in p6 got the belt but he did not actually hit him – he hit the table instead. The way he hit the table it looked like he had hit Andrew. Then we went back to the changing rooms and got our normal clothes back on and went back to the school.
