Old School Day

These photos are of room 3 at the Bishop's School. We got to dress up in olden day clothes. We got to experience what school was like in the 1840's.
We were thinking what was different between the classrooms now and then.

They said that they did work all day!!

These are some of the things that different.
*Desks.
*Clothes.
*Teachers are more strict .
*They had canes and straps.

  1. Room 3 looks very neat and tidy (and a bit scared!). I enjoyed reading the letter apologising for being naughty, it almost sounded like a different language.

  9. I really enjoyed the old school day because the seats were quite comfy and the classroom was really nice. I liked the high windows and the darkness of the room.

  14. The seats were the most uncomfortable ive ever sat in. Me and sam had the smallest seats. We got stuck every time we tried to get up.We got told off alot , because our chairs made a noise every time we stood up. hearing what school was like in the old days almost makes me like school a whole lot more. In the old classroom the windows were to hi to see out of them. would you like the windows in your classroom to be like that?

  17. I thought that the stapler was very old fashion and intresting but i didnt really get how to use it?

    the room was really dark and scary and it was really hard for me because i am left handed with writting but you have to write with your right and so i made lots of mistakes when we had to write

  18. I thought the apology letter was different
    because I couldn't read it so the teacher read it for me and it did not even say what the student did wrong!
