Would I have liked living at Lark Hill Place?

Already this term Year 2 have visited Lark Hill Place. We dressed up as the Victorians and even got to do some washing but we didnt use a washing machine! Can you tell me how we washed the socks and what we used? We also explored the Victorian street! What do you think we saw? any sports cars?

We will be looking at the Victorian times and what it was like at school for children and the conditions they lived in. Children will also be exploring electrical circuits! Did the victorians use electricity?
