Y2 Trip to Gressenhall Museum and Workhouse

What a busy day!

Last week as a class we read Oliver Twist and discussed life as a Victorian orphan living in the workhouse. Today we looked round Gressenhall Workhouse and we did a Through the Keyhole trail looking at various places in the museum. The children had to answer questions which gave a code when the 4 digits were placed in order of size. The code unlocked a padlock to a treasure chest containing an object. It was wonderful to see the children engaging with the task.

A trip to the farm involved meeting animals and doing a stamper trail along the Riverside walk. After lunch it was time to let off steam in the woodland adventure playground.

The children were a pleasure to take out today and I wish to thank the parents who gave up a day to come and help us on the trip.
