Art


 In the suitcase, there was a picture of a woman called Virginia Woolf and a Christmas card referring to a house called Charleston Farmhouse. We decided to find out about who this woman was and her connection to the area. 


 

Design Technology


There was a recipe for bread inside the suitcase. We found out about Uckfield's workhouse. One of the main things they ate was bread. Perhaps this was why there was a bread recipe in the suitcase? We are going to have a go at following the recipe!
