Go Back to the Past at Vaucluse House Live Event
At least one supervising teacher must be online with the students at all times.
About the program
As part of this experience, students will meet Annabel Crabb and the Ferrone family, stars of the ABC’s hit show Further Back in Time for Dinner. Students will visit the 1820s kitchen and discover how food preparation technologies have changed, then step outside to the laundry to discuss washing day and learn about the time consuming task of washing clothes by hand, before returning to the house to explore the larder and discover food storing and cooling techniques.
Finally, students will learn how to play children’s games from the past, such as skipping, quoits and hoops, which they can play together at school after the session. Students will hear from Carol Ferrone and 12 year old Olivia Ferrone, and have the opportunity to ask questions about their first hand experiences of going ‘further back in time’.
The session will be via Zoom and students will engage in polls and have the opportunity to ask questions via Q&A chat.
To continue experiencing the games we demonstrate after the live event, you will need:
- Skipping ropes
