Panther trip to Reveley Lodge

Panther class were very excited to go on their first school trip yesterday!

We visited Reveley Lodge and travelled back in time to live like Victorian children. As a part of our Time Traveller topic, we learnt all about the lives of Victorian children.  First the children dressed up in traditional Victorian smock dresses and waistcoats. They looked so smart!

We were quickly sent to work washing clothes using a dolly stick, dolly tub and mangle.

After we did our days work with laundry, the children stepped inside a Victorian classroom, writing their sentences on traditional slate boards. They even had a visit from the  strict school inspector!

Finally, the children to relaxed after their hard work. We enjoyed drinking a warm cup of tea out of a teacup and saucer! We even had Victoria sponge cake!  Some of the children said snack should be like this everyday!

We are looking forward to writing a recount of our trip and sharing this with another class at school.

We are going to be using our time words and writing in the past tense!

We would like to say a big thank you to the fantastic team at Reveley Lodge and to our parent helpers!
