Today we enjoyed a very hot and sunny trip to Gressenhall Museum of Rural Life.
When we arrived we met Rachel, a Gressenhall workhouse resident. With her was a very strict Victorian school teacher! We spilt into 2 groups and spent time with both people: Rachel showed us round the workhouse and helped us to learn how hard life was for people with no money who ended up here. The school teacher took us to a classtroom from 100 years ago and made us sit up straight, write on a slate and learn a rhyme about Christopher Columbus. No slouching or fidgeting was allowed!
We had a fantastic day and learnt lots about what life was like 100 years ago. This will really help us with our Working As Historians project.
