Who stole the chocolate?

We had an Enabling Enterprise Challenge Day where we had to work in teams and be detectives to solve a who done it mystery. We had to find evidence and analyse it within our groups to narrow down some potential suspects. We then had to create an evidence board and present our findings to the rest of the class. 

We measured water in millilitres in Maths using different types and sizes of containers

We made Mother's Day cards

Our Visit to the Back To Backs.

 

On Wednesday we went to visit the Back to Back houses which are 200 years old. When we got there we got dressed up as Victorian Children, the boys wore a cap, scarf, apron and waistcoat and the girls wore an apron and bonnet.

 

Our first job was to light the fire which children would have helped with in the Victorian times. We started by scrunching up newspaper and making it in to a knot, then we added kindling and coal. The guide lit a match and lit the newspaper. We saw the smoke coming out of the chimney! We found out why the fire was the most important part of the house. The fire was used to keep the house warm, to heat the water, to cook the food and to heat the iron!

 

Next we had a look around the different houses, each house had only 3 rooms; a kitchen downstairs, a boys bedroom on the first floor and the girls shared a bedroom with mum and dad on the top second floor. You were very lucky if you had your own bed most children had to share a bed with as many as 5 children in one bed!

 

Their kitchens were much different to ours, they had no taps so they had to get water from the well, they cooked on the fire and the food was very basic. They didn't have a living room but everyone was too busy working to sit around. The boys would be chopping up wood and maybe going to school while the girls would be helping with the cooking and washing.

 

Outside in the courtyard were the toilets and the washroom, all of the houses around the courtyard had to share the 3 toilets and the one washroom. The courtyard was the only space the children had where they could play but their toys were really simple and often handmade like peg dolls/soldiers, marbles and spinning tops!

 

The children were brilliant and the guides at the Back To Backs praised them for their behaviour! They had a great day but I think they prefer living in 2017 rather than in the Victorian times!
