Yesterday we joined lots of other home educating families for a day out at Little Woodham. It is a reconstructed village set in 1642 and staffed by volunteer craftspeople. It is very close to us and not the first time we’ve been as it is a lovely day out.
Finding out how the buildings were built.
With the Sawyer.
My arm muscles ache!
In one of the houses.
Bed was hard and uncomfy.
To the inn.
Seeing the food they would have eaten.
And having a game of backgammon.
The kitchen garden.
Unfortunately they could get out!
Our favourite spot, a camp in the woods. We played here for ages long after most others had gone.
Exploring and hunting.
And roasting their catch. Poor Achilles! He definitely needs a bath now!
Sam spent ages working on shaping a wooden spear with a stone tool.
At home we used quills to do maths.
