Victorian Washday

Year 2 had great fun this afternoon doing the washing Victorian style! They had to grate the soap, whisk it with warm water, then use the dolly and washboard to get the clothes clean. This was part of their history work on Grace Darling, finding out what life was like for her and her eight brothers and sisters nearly 200 years ago. Most of the children decided that the girls must have worked harder than the boys, who quite liked the idea of going fishing with their dad and helping to maintain the lighthouse where they lived!
