MARCH 3, 1989: The clock was turned back at a Leamington school to celebrate its 100th birthday. Some of the 190 pupils at Clapham Terrace First School were given a taste of 19th century school life, when they swapped their jotters for blackboard slates and calculators for an abacus, during a lesson at a Victorian classroom in Warwick. The girls wore clean white smocks while the boys were dressed in smart sailor-suit collars for the lesson in the county museum at St John's House. Pupils had to recite their tables, do sums on their slates and take down dictation. Were you or your children one of the the pupils?
