Year 2 Visit to Gressenhall Farm:
On Thursday, the Year 2 class headed to the farm at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse. They participated in a special ‘Homes from Long Ago’ to experience a taste of life on a farmhouse 100 years ago. Along with seeing a variety of farm animals including Suffolk Punch horses, pigs and a cow with her calf the children, the children got to ride around the farm on a tractor. The children learned to clean the house using salt and scrub brushes, wash laundry outdoors using carbolic soap and a mangle to press out the water and grilled drop scones on the range for the Vicar’s visit to the farm. They got to dress up in Victorian clothes to really feel transported back to the Victorian age.
