Then he points to first one letter then another speaking it aloud so that all the boys, as soon as they hear him, repeat after him… and then they are allowed 5 minutes to go out to recreation after which they came in again and resume their further station and go on with the alphabet until 11 o’clock.’ ‘Armitage National School in 1840’ William Wood (the first headmaster)
