Howick Historical Village Trip

During the last week of term our whole school visited the Howick Historical Village because we have been learning about education in the past.
Here are some photos of us there and what we saw and learnt:

Yesterday the whole senior block went to the Howick Historical Village.
My best part was when my team and I went for a tour round the village. The houses were very old houses and the objects in the houses were unusual. The part I thought was extremely scary was when we went to school but did things the way the kids did thing back then. The teacher was very strict. After awhile the teacher told us that we had to write what was on the board on our  slate  boards using our right hand only. It said Perseverance over comes difficulties. We had to write that but it had to be exactly how it was written on the board. All the letters were linked together non stop it was very hard but I tried my best. 
I really enjoyed being at the Howick Historical Village.

At our trip to the Howick Historical Village I had so much fun with Mrs White because we used the slate boards and we had to link our letters. My most scary part of that day was when Mrs White got her cane. The other fun thing I think is when we were doing the activities with Mrs Hill doing double dutch and some other activities. Every thing was so awesome when we got to visit the places in the olden days. I really enjoyed the fun day.

Yesterday we went to the Howick Historical Village, Room 7's first activity was olden day toys. The toys inside were attractive a lot! Most of the toys were made out of wood, String and glass. My favourite toy was  the peri scope.  The first activity was the best!  Well that's what I think.  I learnt that toys back in the past could be bought or could be made by yourself and by gravity.

On Thursday we went to Howick Historic Village. It was fun and the best toy was the little people climbing up the rope and we had to write with the old pencils it was easy. There  lots of old toys there some toys were easy and hard.
