Year 1 learn about life before electricity

Toby Stok, visited the Pre-Prep bringing with him a wealth of Victorian artefacts to show the Year 1 children what life was like before electricity. He demonstrated how many of the items were used in the home about a hundred years ago, and kindly allowed the children to handle, explore and try out the various gadgets themselves. In particular, the children liked attempting to clean the floor with three old fashioned carpet sweepers, beating carpets and trying out an old tin bath for size!
