Workhouse Experience

Working hard in the workhouse

Today we experienced life in a Victorian workhouse. For breakfast we had porridge (yum!) and then we were made to work really hard by our masters. We had to beat bed sheets and fold them together carefully. If they weren't good enough, we had to do it again! We also had to clean our shoes and make sure we looked presentable!
