History in Reception and Year One

27th January 2013

Last week, Reception and Year 1 had a visit from Eleanor from Hertford Museum, who taught us all about houses in the past. We looked at some photos and got dressed up as Victorian maids. Then we had time to explore lots of different items that were used to clean homes in the past.

 
Some, like dusters and brushes, we could work out how to use, but some of the objects were very difficult to guess! Eleanor explained what each of them were used for, and we enjoyed learning how different things were in the past.
