Last week Year 3 visited Preston Manor in Hove to learn about the life of a domestic servant. The children experienced a day as a footman, housemaid, kitchen maid or oddman in the Victorian times and they were excited to see inside the historical building. Activities included polishing shoes, washing clothes by hand, churning milk and making gingerbread. At the end of the day four children from each class were chosen to be employed as servants at Preston Manor. The children thoroughly enjoyed their trip and the hands on experience gave them fantastic insight into their topic.
