Today Room 3 went to Te Manawa Museum as part of our inquiry learning into the life of the early settlers. We got to experience what it was like to be a student in a 1902 classroom! The teacher lined everyone up and inspected their nails before they were allowed inside.
We weren't allowed to talk - 'only speak when spoken to' was the rule.
We also had the chance to try on some old-fashioned clothing, have a guided tour of an early settler house with all the old furniture, and even got to make butter. We made pikelets - delicious!
Here are some photos of our day ..
Thanks so much to our lovely parent helpers for providing transport and helping out.
