Victorian Day

23rd November 2017
The date was Thursday 23rd November 1869 (the year Acomb Board School opened) and class 2 all came dressed as they would then. The children paid their penny to come to school and entered the school through the Boys and Girls entrances.
The children studied the 3 Rs and wrote with ink pens and on slates. In the afternoon they took part in drill, as all Victorian children would have done. At playtime, they skipped and played with marbles and skittles.
