Our class went on a school trip to Cultra to learn about houses in the past. It was great fun! We were split into groups and each group went to a different place. First we made soda bread, it was delicious! The ingredients were buttermilk, flour, baking soda and salt. It was cooked on a griddle above an open fire. After that, we went to explore all the of the old houses and buildings. We saw the police station, the bank manager’s house, the post office and the printer. The houses in the past were dark, cold and very small. We were disgusted by the outside toilet! We would not like to have lived there but if we had to choose one of the houses, we would live in the bank manager’s house as it was much nicer. We had a fabulous time and especially loved visiting the old sweet shop.
