Year 2 Trip to Osborne House

    14 June 2019

On Thursday 6th June we travelled to the Isle of Wight. We travelled on the coach for one hour to Southampton and then for an hour on the Red Funnel ferry to East Cowes. - Aarav

Osborne House was Queen Victoria’s holiday palace.  It is very grand! It is pale yellow colour and has turrets and a big clock tower. There are fountains and statues. - Yashk & Caiden

There was a wooden house called the Swiss Cottage.  The Swiss Cottage was the children’s playhouse and it is bigger than most houses today.  We tried on old-fashioned dressing-up clothes. We had watched moving pictures and there was a puppet theatre where we could move the puppets with a stick.  We also saw the kitchen and dining room which are like they used to be in Victorian times.  We saw the children’s toy shop and lots of flower pictures that were made by the princes and princesses. - Alexander & Aliza

The Albert Barracks is where Prince Albert taught the young princes how to be soldiers. There are replica cannons, trenches and a fort. - Rafe & William B

In the children’s gardens they grew fruit, flowers and vegetables.  They have restored them to be exactly the same way is they were in Victorian times.  We saw the replica wheelbarrows. The things they grew were used for them to learn cooking or to eat in the palace.- Freya & Riley

In the Museum we saw a 9-legged spider, a 5-legged deer, a wolf, a crocodile, the tiniest scissors and knife in the world, a shark’s tooth, the skull of a bird, some gems and beautiful shells. - William C and Annabelle

When we were walking to the beach we saw the sculpture trail.  There were five of them, there was a red squirrel, a long-eared bat, a barn owl, a hedgehog and a woodpecker. - Lachlan & Shrihan

The Bathing Machine is at Osborne Beach.  Queen Victoria got changed in it.  The bathing machine was used because in the past people thought it was rude to show your body.  It had big wheels and was rolled out to sea. - Harrison

The Alcove is by Osborne Beach and it is where Queen Victoria used to sit and read a book or paint while watching the sea.  It was round and had lots of patterns and was colourful. - Amelia & Rishika

The Gift Shop has lots of things in it!  They had keyrings, marbles, flags, gems and bouncy balls.  I bought some marbles and a union jack flag. - Ayrton

Finally we went to the play area, we played and played.  The play area was very big and there was a climbing frame and a zip line. - Gabriel
