Event - Living Past Times History Workshop

25 June 2013

On June 25th Year 1 children enjoyed a Living Past Times History Workshop.

The children learnt about all the jobs that had to be done on wash day. They had a go at grating soap flakes, washing clothes with a dolly and washboard, rinsing clothes, using a small mangle, hanging out the washing and folding sheets.

Year 1 received a certificate in Celebration Assembly on Friday, because the way they had asked questions and taken an active part in the workshop had really impressed our visitors, Fred and Fran.

"On Tuesday visitors came to school and their names were Fred and Fran. They told us all about Victorian times and the maids used to use the dolly peg. You had to get some washing into the wash tub and then twist the dolly peg." by Daisy
