Howick Historical Village

It was the day when we all left school,only Rooms 5,3,6 and 7 went. It was the day when we all time travelled to the past. That’s right it was the day when we went to Howick Historical Village And we also have to dress up in olden day clothes, I was so excited I just wanted to jump up and sing with the crew on the bus. At last as I was thinking, we were  finally here!, I could tell everyone just wanted to burst out and say “YEAH’. There were 3 lady that lead us,I was very shocked when I look around it was very clean, the lady welcome us in. First lady told us just have something to eat before we start. After we had our small meal everyone had to line up. The lady told us her name when we were about to start her name was Mrs White, my class was waiting for the other class as they were chatting a long. Mrs White use her hands to make a NOISE!, it was very LOUD.Then she Pointed at us and said This Class is the winner, My Class start to Jump , And all said YEAH! then Mrs Moodley Lead us to the Big House and she was also very pound of us.

When we got there we all just saw a lady there, waiting for us she was wearing clothes from 1800’s, then she announced her name. Her name was Mrs Dodds, she greeted us in but before laddies must go first and we must wipe our feet. Everybody seem excited I knew that I was, Mrs Dodds ask Mrs Moodley we could have two teams, while later we were about to start our first games, she starts off by saying Hello room 6 she gave us some informations about the big house, then gave a fact about kids in 1800’s. Mrs dodds told us the kids will use their brains to make a game. One of the things she told us which I didn't see that coming that kids back then got a tie rope for christmas. Then she show us how to play. She told us we could start from top and down. 1..2..3..GO! everyone start making a noise and cheering their team mate on. Next game was kind of Gross for male and female before we started off, Mrs Dodds told us this is how the boy and girl got along in the 1800s and boys will marry girls in a early age, What Age? 12 or 11 Eww all of us reply. Mrs Dodds got two soft balls it was made out of cotton, we all find the game very not simple, We had to carry the ball from our neck!, And the only thing I like about that game we were all working as a team. It was the last game that we were going to play, it was called squeak piggy squeak. It was one of my favourite!, one of the kids got pick of of the circle, It was the game you can change your voices. After the game we got a chance to look around the house.

As we were walking I could see the school from here, I wonder what was it like to go school there?. The other class saw us there and then they warn us by telling us don’t say a word.
When we got there Mrs Mills told us some rules and all listen and follow, I was shocked then she let the Girls go inside first, ladies first. I did not heard a sound I just heard the wind outside and the boys feel stomping in. Good Morning class, Good Morning Mrs Mills as we reply, then the boys bow as the girl cruises. We started off doing handwriting with nibs and ink, It was hard really hard. After that we had a challenge, Girls vs Boy in a spelling contest. It was fun but it turn that the Girls won!. What I have learn about kids in the 1800s that they were thankful what they have got and they listen and did what they were told. I really enjoy going to school I wonder what we are doing next.

When our next activity was buiting something, each of us went in a group the lady which was helping us build our trolley, her name was Mrs White, she set us up into groups. When we saw our part of the trolley it look hard to make but the only thing I know that would make it better if we work as a TEAM!. The really hard bit I think was trying to find the right way to sit on it. But I really enjoy working as a team with other kids that I don’t really hang around with. When wave good bye to Mrs White and then we got our lunch and then got something to eat. All the Kids ate their lunch quickly and went to around howick historical. It was our turn to go for out tor as they called it treasure hunt we had to find something that was not in the 1800s. It was a thinking tor we all visit the whole museum, but when we all heard the bell it was time to go.
