Ynysllwyd infants 1911
Ynysllwyd infants 1911 (2013039)
Back to school! This early photograph (courtesy of RCT Libraries ) shows the Infants Class in Ynysllwyd School. Opened in 1903, the school was already eight years old when this picture was taken. The teacher stands in front of the folding partition which separates her classroom from the one next door. Momentarily distracted by the camera, the class activity for the hour appears to be geared towards the ability of the individual rather than the class as a whole: some have their drawing boards out (presumably to sketch the floral display in front), whilst others demonstrate their skills with building blocks and tiles. The back wall displays a series of chalk drawings of the dandelion leaf (dated 1.3.11), and a suitable selection of cultural and natural motifs befitting the educational expectations of the day.
