As part of our History learning about the past we have been finding out about life in Victorian times. Handling objects borrowed from the museum was an empowering experience which initiated enquiry and conversation. We described the artefacts, wondered about their uses and made up stories about them. We especially enjoyed cooking in our Victorian kitchen ,comparing everything to our kitchens now. We all thought wash day was much easier nowadays but not as much fun as it was when they used a poss stick and tub!
