R10 Visit to Tredegar House

At the end of March, R10 pupils enjoyed stepping back in time to the Victorian era as they spent a day at the impressive Tredegar House. Pupils have been studying day to day life and the differences in social class during this historical era and thoroughly embraced the day. Dressed as Victorian children, pupils had a tour of the house and learned all about the Morgans of Tredegar and their influential role in the development of industry and commerce in South Wales, particularly within the city of Newport. Pupils were also able to take part in daily Victorian activities such as cooking in the old kitchen, using herbs and vegetables from the garden; as well as the making of ‘rag rugs’ and playing Victorian games! The highlight of the day for many was finding out that Lord Tredegar used to keep a crocodile underneath his bed!
