In Year 4, we have been learning about Victorian punishments. If children in school were being silly they would wear a ‘Dunces hat’ and stand in a corner while wearing the hat! That would be so embarrassing! We also looked at some of the jobs older people did, you might get blisters and horrible injuries…sometimes people got caught in a machine! Our best thing we have done so far is go to Armley Mills. It was so much fun.
