YEAR two pupils at Felsted Preparatory School were fortunate enough to visit Braintree Museum as part of their study on the Victorian Era.
The seven year olds dressed up for the day as Victorian school children and were taught in a Victorian classroom.
They were able to handle genuine Victorian artefacts and were encouraged to guess what these were used for.
Lisa Feldman, teacher of the Year Two Fox Class said: "This was our first trip to Braintree Museum and we had a very special day.
