Reception Class Go Back in Time

Children in reception class visited Beamish Museum in the autumn term as part of their topic on learning about life ‘a long time ago’. Children explored the town and pit village, visited the shops – a favourite being the old sweet shop where they did sample a few of its wares, miners cottages, the train station and the school.

The class were extremely excited to be going on a trip and exceeded all our expectations with their exemplary behaviour. Staff at the museum and the public continuously commented on how well behaved and sensible they were!

We don’t think the children liked school in the 1900’s-there was a very stern teacher! However the playground games seemed to be a hit!

Back in class they discussed their experience of the day. Here are some of their quotes:-

James said “I went on the tram-they had them in the olden days and they used to take people places”.

McKenzie said “I went in the sweet shop and the woman put the sweets in a paper bag”.

Samia said “In the olden days the toilet was outside, and do you know when it was night time they went to the toilet in a pot under the bed!”.
