With the schools returning for the new School Year these pictures of Byron Road Infants' School taken in 1918 show how school life used to be 100 years ago.

The 2 photos show the same classroom but with group IVA (4A) and Group VI (6) so are probably taken 2 years apart. The pictures on the wall are slightly different although what looks like a painting of Humpty Dumpty is present in both.

The children in the IV A photo holding the board are Harold Hudson Light and Marion Grace Light. There are 24 children and 1 teacher showing. 

Harold appears to be in the below photo to the left of the Humpty Dumpty picture standing against the wall at the back of the classroom. In this picture there are 48 children so is it 2 classes together or just much larger class sizes?
