On Thursday 9th November class 2 visited Beamish Museum to explore properties and shops from the past and to take part in a Victorian school lesson. The children also enjoyed having rides on a whole range of transport including the Elephant Locomotion steam train, trams and buses.
Many children arrived for the day dressed up as a Victorian school child and they looked wonderful in their costumes.
Inside the school the children completed arithmetic tasks, listened to a historical story and completed an observational drawing task. Outside in the playground some children tried to control the hoop and stick.
