1 / 2 excursion

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.


The funniest thing was the white pot that you go to the toilet in.
