Time Travellers!

Time travellersThis half term Year 2 are learning about the past, through our exciting topic: Time Travellers!

We started our topic by looking at how different household objects have changed over the years. The children found it disgusting that there weren’t proper toilets in Victorian times!

We have also read the story of Oliver Twist where we learnt what life was like for a child 150 years ago. Did you know that some children had jobs?

We looked at what it was like to be poor and in the workhouse as well as what it was like if you were rich.

To help us learn more about the Victorian times we are going on a trip to Beamish Museum.

The children will also look at the nurse Florence Nightingale and the work she did in the Victorian times.
