Last Monday and Tuesday the Year 1 /2 classes visited Werribee Mansion to look at how people lived in the ‘olden days’. I went along on Tuesday and my students have been writing about their experiences during the week.
Here are some of their compositions about the ‘highlights’ of the excursion:
I saw a chalkboard and puppets and an old dress and old man clothes.
I saw chickens and they were laying eggs. I saw olden days horse things.
You were allowed to sit on the horse. It was standing still.
I was smelling the pink and purple roses.
My favourite part is the long stairs. I liked climbing the stairs up to the other rooms.
In the kids’ room there was a yellow doll house and a big bed.
The ducks were swimming on the big lake. The island didn’t have any animals on it.
