Year 3 at Beamish

12th October 2018

Year 3 visited Beamish as part of their History topic, 'Children Past and Present'. While there, they spent time in a 1940's farm house and learned about what children would have been required to do during an air raid.  They then spent time in a 1900's Victorian school house where they were given lessons and they then went to an 1820's hall where the children were made to do tasks like cleaning pots and sweeping the floors. The children were looking carefully at how childhood was different across the three time periods and they have used their experiences at Beamish to create some great discursive arguments and recounts on their return to school.
