This morning at nine thirty, the whole senior school apart from room nine went to Howick Historical Village. We went by bus to get there. When we got there we got off and waited for our instructions. We got into our class lines boys and girls. Then we went into our first activity which it was about toys.

A lady that was dressed like the olden days came and took us inside to play with the toys, I was surprised that all of the toys were made out of wood and strings. Inside the classroom was very old and so cold, the school was built in 1880.

Our second activity was the school, I wasn’t excited to go in because it was freezing and everyone knows that old house are so cold. The cool thing was that we got to write with the chalk on a mini blackboard. The teacher told us that that back then when kids didn’t listen they got six smacks.

After that we went to a bakery to see how they made butter. The only ingredients I knew was something to do with the cream, and milk that was all. After the lady made the butter another lady came in from the door and took out crackers for the butter to go on top of. Butter with cracker was so delicious and I wanted a second one but we weren’t allow.

The last activity was playing with things that kids played with back in the days. I had so much fun playing with the toys and my favourite thing I played with was the stilts because when I walked with them I was a taller and it was so much fun.

After our last activity we went for lunch, we had fun talking to each other about the activities and how most of the olden days houses looked. We were so excited for the tour after lunch because we wanted to see inside the houses and how they felt.

After lunch the teachers told us to get back into our groups and get ready for the tour. First we went to see a house that was old and dustie. We went in and saw most of the valuable things that the owner of the house kept. He had a little office and I was surprised that he wrote with a feather instead of pencils or pen. His desk was so dustie and old, especially his chair. I thought to myself that most things that are in his house were very delicate.

Then we went up to see the bedrooms. They looked clean and comfortable to sleep in. But the daughter’s room were full of dolls, her dolls were so scary and very frightening. Most of us were tip toeing because we were thinking that the top floor might fall off.
