Year 5 Experience Life in the Past

Year 5 BeamishYear 5 took a trip back in time when they visited Beamish   Open Air Museum this week. They have been studying life in the past as part of their curriculum topic. The children had a hands on approach as they experienced how people used to live. They visited the old town then caught a bus which took them to the pit village.

The class took a trip down the mine to discover what life was like for the young miners in the late nineteenth century. Feeling a little apprehensive they put on their hard hats and entered the dark, damp tunnel.

The day finished with a Victorian school lesson. As you can see from their faces the children  were shocked at the harsh punishment the teacher used!

The teacher was very strict and the classroom very different to that of today. I think year 5 will appreciate having Mr Stockill as their teacher now! They had a fantastic day out and returned to school well and truly worn out but excited to continue their class topic.
