The Year One boys gave a recount of our visit.
Here are extracts from some of the boy’s recounts

Mrs Brown came to our school. She told us how a house was cleaned in the Victorian times. There was no electricity so everything was done by hand. First we went up some dark stairs into the attic to have a sleep. Next we went to the laundry room and we washed a shirt with special soap and we ironed the shirt. Then we went to the kitchen and cooked a nice big pig’s head and put some butter on the pig’s head. Next we went to the drawing room. We lit the fire and used bellows to keep the fire burning. We polished the silver and the cutlery and we also had to beat the dust off the carpet. Finally we went to the nursery and we played with the toys. We had lots of fun.
