Room 1 were lucky enough to be part of the Ironbark excursion this Term to Sovereign Hill. We learnt about what life was like on the Australian goldfields in the 1850s for men, women and children. We heard about their daily lives and what the children used to learn in school and the games that they played. We went on the Red Hill Mine Tour and also watched the Gold Pour. This involved melting the gold and pouring it into a mould to create a bar of gold. We saw the troopers marching around the streets and students attending the National School. We also went Gold Panning in the creek, which was so much fun! We all had a great day and would love to go back!
