    EXCURSIONS Discover a whole other life

  • WELCOME At Sydney Living Museums we engage students in actively investigating and better understanding the past. We offer programs that immerse children in authentic historical contexts and develop their critical, creative and reflective thinking skills through structured activities and interaction.

    Our programs are closely linked to the curriculum, including the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum: History K–10. They are designed to develop students’ skills as historians, including the use of sources, recognition of perspectives and interpretations, and empathetic understanding.

    Our places and their stories are at the heart of every program we offer. We are privileged to tell the tales of the sites over which we have custodianship, and the people – convicts and free settlers, Aboriginal clans and colonists, troopers and bushrangers – who were connected to them. Our buildings, gardens and grounds all contain important clues to our past that students discover during their visits. We facilitate active learning, exploration of sources, use of historical artefacts and technologies, costumed interpretation and imaginative re-creation.

    If you and your students are unable to visit our properties in person, we invite you to participate in one of our virtual excursions. For Stage 2 there is A Convict Story, the popular tale of the experiences of convict Ivan Gotney at the Hyde Park Barracks. For Stage 3 we now offer Law of the Land, an interactive discussion with an 1850s trooper about how the police overcame the threat of bushrangers during the gold rush.

    We thank you for your interest in our programs and look forward to welcoming you and your class in 2015.

    ROUSE HILL HOUSE & FARM Monday to Friday $25 per student Full day, 10am–2pm Maximum 60 students

    This program for Stage 1 students integrates outcomes from HSIE, PDHPE and Creative Arts, and gives children the opportunity to learn firsthand what school life was like in the late 19th century.

    Students begin by dressing up in period costume

    and meeting their schoolmistress or master, who leads them in saluting

    the British flag and singing the national anthem, ‘God Save the Queen’. Various hands-on activities, such as practising writing on slates, a sewing lesson, an outdoor physical

    education drill and (weather permitting) maypole dancing in the yard, enable students to make vivid comparisons between schooling then and now. After a break for lunch and some 19th-century games, students move back into the classroom for a natural history and drawing lesson to round off the day.

    A shorter version of this program can be combined with Early to Rise to create an alternative full-day excursion (see page 6).

    ROUSE HILL HOUSE & FARM Monday to Friday $180 for up to 20 students (see website for details) 1 hour 30 minutes Maximum 60 students

    This program for students in Stage 1 HSIE also incorporates outcomes and content from Stage 1 History (NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum: History K–10).

    Students stretch their legs as they explore the working areas of the former farm and do a few chores that would have been part of daily life for children living there in the late 1800s – feeding the chooks, hanging out the washing and pumping water. They visit the 19th-century cottage and consider how

    family life lived there would have been different from their own. They also explore the beautiful stables built by the Rouse family, learning about the vital role of horses at the time as an essential means of transport and for getting work done around the farm.

    This program can also be combined with Lessons from the Past to create a full-day excursion (see page 6).
