Year 2 Visit Beamish

Beamish

As part of our topic ‘Time Travellers’, Year 2 visited Beamish Museum in Durham. While we were there the children got to experience what life was like 100 years ago.

We started the day off by taking a ride on an old tram which took us to the town. There we explored different shops and businesses. We got to try delicious old fashioned sweets and freshly baked cakes.

After our lunch we went down the mine where the children were taught about life as a miner. We explored the cottages and sat on outdoor toilets! We also visited the school and drew on slate. The children especially enjoyed playing with the old equipment.

We had a fantastic day and it really brought our learning to life.
