Year 2 Trip to St. John’s Museum

Last week, Year 2 enjoyed a successful trip to St. John’s Museum. They experienced what it would have been like to go to school in Victorian Times. They had to work in silence and sit up very straight!
They also looked at 2 different Victorian houses. Did you know that a wealthy family might have had 10 or more servants to look after them?
Another fun part of the day was a visit to a Victorian kitchen. The children made washing powder, then used a dolly stick to agitate the clothes and a mangle to squeeze out the excess water. What hard work!
The behaviour was excellent and the children were a real credit to the school. Well done!
