Stepping into the past at Como House

Our Year One students recently had an exciting excursion to Como House, where they experienced a fascinating journey into the past. The day was filled with engaging activities that brought history to life. 

Students played olden days games like croquet, skipping, hot potato, egg and spoon race, and sack race. They also learned about the daily lives of servants by washing clothes, responding to different bells in the house, and examining historical artifacts.

The tour of the house was a highlight, allowing students to explore various rooms and learn about their uses in the past. Students also took part in a thrilling scavenger hunt, where they followed clues to solve the mystery of who broke Laura’s porcelain doll. It was a memorable day of hands-on learning and fun for everyone.
