My favourite thing from our trip to Howick Historical Village was the parlour games because we got to play the blindfolded game. We had to spin around and when you got dizzy you had to find a person and sit in front of them and say “squeak piggy squeak”. You had to then guess the person ‘oinking’ behind you. They then became the next person to have a go at the blindfold.
Miss Dodds said it was then time for the string game we had to get over our body. It was the boys team that won. Our teams were called Lakers and Dragons.
The last game we played was called ‘ball and neck game’. We had to pass the ball with no hands, we had to use our neck to pass it. Miss Dodds said “get your marks, get set, go!”. It was hard and people were excited and jumping up and down. The bell rang and so we had to go back and have lunch time with the other classes.
