Year 6 classes had a very enjoyable and informative visit at Sevington Victorian School before half term. Built in 1848 by Joseph Neeld, a landowner, for the children of his estate workers, it is now used for enactments of a Victorian school day.
In the morning, our children enjoyed such activities as writing on a blackboard, and learnt about how the cane was used as a punishment. In the afternoon, they set to work making bees wax candles and lavender bags.
Thank you to our catering manager, Tim, who provided packed lunches of warm loaves, cheese and apples. It was such an enjoyable day with children returning thankful for the benefits of a 21st century education!
