We arrived at New Lanark and found out that the bell in the tower rang at 5am to make sure everyone was up and ready for work at 6am!
We had a look at the Washroom.
The children went into a Victorian room.
We found out what a gazunder was and what you did with it.
Then we visited a room from the 1960’s and looked at the similarities and differences.
There were some interesting suggestions for the carpet beater.
It was interesting to see what was on sale in the shop.
We were transported back in time to the Victorian School Room. The boys had smocks and the girls had dresses with ribbons. We had to sit in rows with the boys on one side and the girls on the other.
We practised our handwriting on slate, using a slate pencil.
We had to identify and point to countries in Europe, with a long pole, on a huge map.
We really enjoyed our trip!
