Year 6 History Trip to Gressenhall Museum of Rural Life

Year 6 Solve the Mystery of the Stolen Candlesticks!

Transported back to 1865 with Queen Victoria on the throne, Year 6 met an array of costumed characters who gave them a taste of workhouse and farm life from the time, whilst they also tried to discover who had stolen Mrs Clackett’s precious silver candlesticks. Could it have been the school master who had drilled rote times tables into the children? Maybe it was Alice, the overworked and resentful washerwoman, or perhaps Plowright, one of Gressenhall’s habitual returnees or even Mrs Clackett herself, furious that her husband had given them to the chapel. Only Year 6 know the answer!
