Burghley House

Our trip to Burghley House.


We had a fantastic day at Burghley House as part of our topic on Victorians. We were able to have a guided tour of the house and find out what the house was like in Victorian times and were able to handle Victorian artefacts and guess what they were used for. Later we had a go at some typical Victorian servant jobs such as polishing shoes and saddles, folding large bed sheets, setting a table, making a collage and making butter. Kiki and Ethan were dressed up as Victorians - we had to call them John and Mary!


We had a wonderful day and once back at school we did some super writing about our day.
