Students at a school stepped back in time with a Victorian themed day.
The year six pupils from Langtons Junior School in Western Avenue, Hornchurch enjoyed everything Victorian on Wednesday October 3.
Teacher Jackie Harbott said: “The children absolutely loved it.
“It gave them a real insight of what life was like for children going to school in the era.”
The day saw the students and teachers coming to school dressed in Victorian clothes.
The youngsters even used ink and quill to write with and lunch times saw them playing with Victorian games.
Jackie said: “At the end of the day, a lot of the students were asking if they could do it again.
“We tried to make it as authentic as we could and surprisingly they even loved the dictations.”
The teachers organised the day as part of a project the students are doing on the Victorian period.
