This session is a gentle introduction to how people lived in the past. Pupils start the day by building an interactive timeline of Astley Hall using portraits and props to get an understanding of the various families that lived at the hall.  They will look at how buildings change over time through a tour of the building and sketching activities. They will gain insight into domestic life as they have a go at washing clothes without washing machines and match old objects to their modern equivalents in the kitchen.
