Y5 visit the Old House Museum

On Tuesday 10th May, We took the Y5 classes to the fabulous Old House Museum for a Victorian history morning.

We began the morning by singing a Victorian wash day song, before splitting into three groups.

Our activities were then:

  • Outdoor games-including marbles, quoits, hop-scotch and skipping.
  • Looking round the museum at farming implements and the cotton industry.
  • The whole process of washing clothes from preparing the soap flakes, scrubbing stains out, pounding in the tub etc.

Lots to see and learn. History on our doorstep.
