Year 7 students went back in time to discover more about life in years gone by.
The students went on a fact-finding mission to Milton Keynes Museum to discover all about its fascinating secret treasures.
The research will be used in June when the students will become tour guides at the museum for Year 5 children from local schools.
Director of Personal Development Miss Gockelen said: “The project helps students with their presentation skills and also gives them an insight into life in Milton Keynes in the past.”
Student Caitlin Roy was particularly impressed with the telephone room: “It’s been really nice being able to use the phones and find out how they worked. We are used to mobiles and it is interesting to see how phones used to be.”
Aiden Mills added: “We have found out that phones weren’t wireless so you couldn’t move around much when talking. It will be good showing this part of the museum to the Year 5s.”
Students were very interested in sitting at wooden desks in a Victorian classroom and hearing about how disobedient children were punished.
Students also enjoyed looking inside the Edwardian kitchen and Victorian parlour.
