Yr 1 & Yr 2 Travel Back in Time

October 6th, 2009 | Posted by Rebecca Walker in Events

Last Friday, Year One and Year Two stepped back in time at Lanhydrock house to investigate their class projects for this term. Year One explored the Children’s Wing of the house and found that life experienced by Victorian children of more than one hundred years ago was very different from that of children today. However, many of the toys seen in the Day Nursery were recognised by the children and modern versions of them still played with by our children today.
Year Two explored the domestic side of Victorian life, with special reference to the type of  food that would have been eaten then, how it would have been preserved and prepared for the table. Life without a fridge and a freezer was actually seen to have been possible, at least for the more affluent Victorians! Our thanks go to Mr John Carter and Mrs Nina Bryan for driving the minibuses and accompanying us on our visit around the house.
