The year fives spent the day re enacting what life would have been like back in 1800. All the students dressed up in period costume and went on to have a great experience making butter, dancing the heel and toe, playing olden days games, having an 1800’s ‘classroom experience’ as well as lesson in calligraphy. Students presented a short speech about their dress up choice, wrote a letter in the style of the time and made or brought a prop which would have been used at the time.
All this – a perfect lead up to their camp at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat.
