On Monday the 28th and Tuesday the 29th of May, our grade 1-2 students visited the Werribee Mansion. The aim of this excursion was to support our Inquiry learning around the past and the present. Students participated in a range of activities including a tour of the mansion, dress ups and a visit to some old farm buildings. Read some of their thoughts below:
Zuhair: My favourite part of Werribee Mansion was washing the clothes. I learnt you needed wood in the past to get the dirt off clothes.
Lien: I was grating the soap like they did in the olden days. The soap was used to wash clothes. It smelled a bit bad like rotten butter!
Brandon: We went to the wet room where we learnt about washing clothes. We had a tour of the Werribee Mansion with the butler.
