Here are 6 fantastic recounts written by some students in our class about the excursion we went on to the Migration Museum and Ayers House as part of our unit of inquiry.
On Tuesday 19th of September Room A1, A3 and A4 went to the Migration Museum and Ayers House in Adelaide city. We went on an excursion because we wanted to learn more about the past.
First we went to the Migration Museum. We got dressed. I choose the summery dressing they gave us names. Next I went with Toby and we learned about South Australia in the olden days and the punishment they gave kids. Then I went with Rebecca and we learned how to write our names in their writing all together. Then we played some games. After that we left. Then we ate lunch in front of Ayers House. Inside we got to meet Mrs Peters and Mrs Wood we learned to be servants. We saw the ladies bedroom and then the gentlemen’s bedroom. In the nursery we learned a little rhyme. We went to the kitchen and I made a cake out of kinetic sand. We also polished the stair case up to the top.
I felt happy because I got to be a servant and putting the clothes on that we don’t put on anymore. My favourite room in Ayers House was the kitchen. My favourite part was getting the clothes on.
