Today Haddenham Community Junior School held a 1914 day as part of their work this term on the centenary of the start of WW1.

The day started with an assembly where the pupils shared what they had learnt with parents and grandparents.

Timetables for the day included reciting prayers and class rules, handwriting, arithmetic, whole school drill, sewing (for the girls) and technical drawing (for the boys).

Some children found themselves standing in the corner after minor misdemeanours but no one actually got the cane!

The children and staff looked fabulous in their outfits.

We imagine they will appreciate the more relaxed relationships they have with their teachers after this!
