ST ANDREW’S School in Farnham opened in 1860 – and 159 years later the school’s current cohort of Year 1 pupils have turned back the clock with a Victorian Day as part of their history lessons.

The children dressed up in their finest Victorian clothes and visited the Museum of Farnham in West Street, where they went back in time to experience life as an Victorian-era child.

The children had the opportunity to practice their handwriting using a traditional pen and ink.

At St Andrew’s School three children re-enacted a photo taken during the Victorian times.

Very little has changed in the photograph in more than a century, apart from a coat of tarmac having been applied to the playground.

Health and safety measures have moved on a little too, with the decision having been made not to position the pupils atop the spiked iron railings for the re-enactment!
