Where happiness and achievement go hand in hand

An Afternoon in the Workhouse

This morning, Year 1 received a letter through the timehole from Sherlock Holmes. He told us that Bert has been sent to the Linton workhouse! Sherlock Holmes was worried about Bert, so he also sent as a cooking pot... Could it be the MAGIC porridge pot from our story? We hope so! 
In the afternoon on Monday, the children became workhouse residents; washing windows and doors, sewing, using the mangle and sorting objects; a fairly tedious set of tasks. Our final decision: we'd rather be at school than in the Victorian workhouse!
