A TRIP to the County Museum at Hartlebury Castle took year three children from St Peter’s Catholic First School back to Victorian times.
Dressed in 1899 attire and using the equipment available 120 years ago, they endured the hard work of poor boot boys and scullery maids, with chores including washing, scrubbing, ironing, polishing and preparing dinner.
They also faced an intimidating Victorian teacher who made them call her ‘ma’am’ and introduced them to the cane, back straightener and dunce’s hat.
Teacher Gemma Reed said the children had a great time.
“They worked and behaved impeccably and avoided all the punishments,” she added.
The next day the children returned to St Peter’s for a full day of Victorian learning.
