Year 5 and 6 visited Preston Manor where they experienced the life of a Victorian maid. They were put under the care of the Head-maid Miss Rose and Housekeeper Mrs Storey who were very strict! Their jobs included cleaning carpets with tea leaves, polishing and dusting, making beds, washing clothes, polishing boots, cooking and setting the table. The girls even learnt how the Victorian’s would make lemonade. At the end of the day it was decided if any of the maids were good enough to be employed!
