One, suitably dank and dismal autumn day, we sent Barn Owl class back in time to the Victorian Workhouse...
As part of their project on "Crime and Punishment" the children are abut to discover what it really means to "Have it Tough"...
Come on in...
And see what it was actually like all those years ago.
"Right", said the master, "We'll start with the lads".
"And no talking, SILENCE!"
(That'll make a change..!)
Now, this is how you "Doff yer cap".
Note how Seb and Matt are already in a start of shock!
"There's none of that laughter here !" careful Finlay you'll get the strap!
"Next I'll show you what's for dinner" You can pull your face all you like Dom, its potato soup and gruel for you - meat's on a Sunday !
Bed time... Night, night, sleep tight, mind the bugs (cosily tucked up in your dirty straw filled mattress) don't bite... Woody's clearly looking forward to that...
Back to school, Workhouse style !
Tricky things these slates...
