Year Three pupils from Hilltop Primary School, in Southgate, enjoyed a Victorian Day on Thursday (May 9).

The 16 pupils, aged seven to eight, came to school dressed in the appropriate 19th century attire and spent the day learning about the Victorian ways of life. The day provided a first-hand experience of what is was like to be a pupil in a Victorian school.
