We had such a wonderful time at the Ragged School on Friday. We travelled from Wimbledon to Mile End dressed as Victorian children and enjoyed a role play day at the museum. During the morning we learnt about some of the jobs children had to do at home in 1888. We investigated different artifacts and what they were used for and learnt lots about how the Victorians washed their clothes and kept warm in bed. We also went to school and had lessons with Mrs Perkins, a very strict Victorian teacher. We wrote with chalk on a blackboard and learnt a bit about the behaviour expected in a Victorian Schoolroom. We had a fantastic day and enjoyed stepping back in time to experience life as real Victorian children.
