Juniors Victorian Trip

As part of their topic on Victorians the Juniors recently visited Braintree Museum where they discovered more about life in Victorian times. They learnt about life in the mills and  did some weaving, tried plaiting corn-dolly style and discovered how washing was done. The highlight of the day was enduring a lesson in the Victorian classroom with the school ma’am and her back straightener (for those who slouched), her dunce hat and finger stocks!
