Junior Primary School visits

We invite you and your students to visit us so that we can work together to address many aspects of the National History Curriculum.

Students are introduced to the history of the building and local area, and are able to experience lifestyles in the 1850s to 1950s. Hands-on activities are included.

Our volunteers look forward to running two of the following modules:

Candelight Living *

Start in kitchen, talk about life with no electricity, try some hands on chores. Move upstairs to the bedroom and talk about bath time habits. Visit the parlour and children's nursery.

Rub and Scrub

Commence by water tank, move to laundry, hands on scrubbing, wringing, using dolly pegs and irons, then a visit to the old dunny.

School Days *

What was school like in the old days?
What subjects did the students study?
How tricky is it writing on a chalk board?

Pioneers to Producers

Commence in the Slab Hut and discover what did the early settlers bring from their homelands. What was shopping like and how did the local baker go about his work? This module includes completing our take-home worksheet.

NOTE: Two indoor modules (marked with *) cannot be run at the same time.

School staff will supervise the third module - part of every visit:

Old Time Games
