Year 5 Rural Life Museum

Posted: 14th September 2023

Year 5 went to the Rural Life Museum in Farnham this week as part of their Victorians topic in Humanities. While there, the children got to see all of the marvellous agricultural and technological inventions that the Victorians developed, and enjoyed having a go on some of them themselves! They also experienced life in a Victorian school, including the harsh discipline for not following instructions – a swift whack of the cane! Year 5 also had a go at working in the laundry, where they had to collect water and wash and dry clothing.  Thank you to everyone at the Rural Life Museum, it was a great hands on way to start the Year 5’s Victorians topic.
