Foundling Day in Year 2

Year 2 at Torriano School turned into the Foundling Hospital today, with the children experiencing a little of what life would have been like for those who were left at Thomas Coram’s establishment. We took part in many different activities throughout the day; sewing, cleaning, gardening, washing clothes, handwriting, dictation, reading the Bible, learning 18th century¬†poetry, exercise drills, playing with hoops and some of us were even sent to the punishment room!

We will be writing recounts of our day which we will share with the Key Stage 2 children.

It certainly was an interesting day with some rather strict teachers!
