The children were able to see how life would have been in the farm house, pumping water, doing laundry in the huge tubs with a dolly and stocking the larder with all kinds of preserved fruits and vegetables.
After the lesson we explored further and found a Victorian bathroom and toilet outside in a wood and corrugated iron shed,
and then moved on to WW11 when we found an old air raid shelter. Hannah was surprised at how small it was inside for a whole family to shelter in.
We had a lovely, very informative day and on the way home we saw this beautiful rainbow!
