Where individuals flourish

Acorn's Visit - St John's Museum

Acorn Class took part in the Victorian Laundry, where they had to help the laundry maid wash the Lord and Lady's clothes. The children grated the soap known as 'jelly soap', they used a dolly, a posser and a dolly tub to wash the clothes and then a mangle to squeeze all the water out. During the second part of the visit, they learnt about the role of the servants in the household and made comparison of the families from a rich house and poor house, which included dressing up and handling artefacts!
