In Year 2 this week, we were lucky enough to visit Beamish Museum! The children experienced what a school would be like in the Victorian times. They noticed lots of differences between school life then and now. They also noticed how much stricter the teacher was. Despite this, they had lots of fun playing Grandma’s Footsteps, writing, reading and learning about different types of leaves.
Next, we ventured to the farm. We saw lots of different animals including geese, a turkey, sheep and a pig called Nelly. The children learned all about farm life during the war and how families would stay safe in an Anderson Shelter.
In the town, the children were very excited to visit the bakery and the sweet shop which were filled with lots of delicious sweets.
The children were mesmerised by the different types of transport we saw. The buses, although looked similar, they had no doors or seatbelts!
