R11 History Trip
Last term, R11 enjoyed stepping back in time to the Victorian era, as they visited Maestir School in St Fagans. Pupils started their day in true Victorian fashion, wearing clothes typical of the historical period. Pupils were accompanied by Mr Taylor, the school master, and Miss McManus, the pupil-teacher as they made their way to the school where they took part in a drill, and a number of Victorian school activities, such as handwriting, arithmetic, reading and singing. Pupils enjoyed learning about how our modern day education differs from education in the late 1800s.
Pupils also visited the terraced houses from different historical periods, learning about the living conditions in Britain leading up to, during and after the Second World War. Pupils continued with their Second World War studies, as they took part in an interesting and informative workshop at the Gwalia Stores where they learnt of shopping trends, post-war.
Miss McManus would also like to praise all pupils for their impeccable behaviour both during and after the trip.
Da iawn, R11!
