Year 5 went on a trip to the The Ragged School Museum.
What is the Ragged School Museum?
Well it is a museum in the London Borough of
Tower Hamlets. The museum was opened in 1990 in the premises of the
former Dr Barnardo's Copperfield Road Ragged School. It is a museum based around the Victorian times, which was perfect for Year 5 as they have been busy learning all about the Victorians.
They took part in a Victorian lesson, with ‘Miss Perkins’ played by an actor, in a recreated Victorian Classroom. Year 5 experienced what school was like for poor Victorian children and they were shocked at how strict Miss Perkins could be.
Then it was off to the Victorian
East End Kitchen, a recreated kitchen belonging to an East End family in
about 1900. This session, had our pupils role playing domestic life of poor Victorians. They were busy clothes washing in a tin
bath and ironing with flat irons, it was an
opportunity to handle objects more than one hundred years old.
They soon realised that there were no washing machines or other luxury items in the Victorian Times.
I bet they were all glad to get back to the 21st century!
