On Friday the 2nd of November 2018, the year 2’s to year six all dressed up as Victorian children for a school trip to Gressenhall.
We all had different lesson, for example we did a school lesson and we had to write our names on slate. The school teacher was very strict and made someone had to stand in the corner and wear the dunce’s hat.
After we finished class, we then went with Mr Ploughright to the next activity. He owned the workhouse and told us that Victorians made and crafted oakham there. To make oakham you need to hit and pluck rope. It is then put in a barrel and then mixed up. People who died from oakham lung were buried in the grounds of Gressenhall.
We also cooked dropped scones whilst on the trip. After that we did some washing of the clothes and then we went back to the chapel in the yard before heading back to school.
