P4/5 report on the day!
We had an awesome trip.
I liked dressing up and being the character in the 1700s townshop. The peat smoke killed bugs, protected the roof and helped preserve foods. 5 people would sleep in the boxbed. If you were pregnant you would sleep in the cool part of the house.
I liked being in the 1937 school and learning about the history of it. It was very strict. I was proud of my handwriting.
We found out that somebody paid £5 (a week’s wages at that time)for a banana during the rationing in World War 2. We passed the Shinty pavilion that was damaged by a German air raid. We had fun milking the cow. We remembered the mangle from our O.R.T book and saw one today.
Miss MacDonald’s report ~ we had a fantastic day! P4/5 were a credit to the school with good behaviour and polite manners and asked lots of interesting questions. The Highland Folk Museum is worth a visit. We did not get round the whole site and there was lots more to see. It is free entry so could be a plan for the summer holidays 🙂
A few photos ~ more to come!
