The children attending St. David’s Roman Catholic school often partook in ‘object lessons’, whereby children would be shown an object and given a brief description of it to help broaden their vocabulary and improve spelling. For more information about object lessons and St. David’s Catholic schools in Swansea, see the section of the website concerning St. David’s Roman Catholic School

Here you can find a modern version of an object lesson, using words found within the school log books: Object Lesson Activity for Children
