Lost toys at Beamish - a virtual hunt!
We can't visit Beamish on a school trip at the moment, so we had to do the next best thing - a virtual visit! We met up with Simon from the museum, who explained that ten toys had been lost in and around the town. Simon helped us explore a range of different shops and buildings including the mechanics, the grocers and the draper's. Thankfully, we were able to find all ten toys and Simon was very pleased with us. We were fascinated by the toys that were hidden. They were all toys that children who lived many years ago would have played with, and they looked really good fun even now. We are very lucky because Beamish have delivered these toys to our classroom and we can't wait to play with them soon!
A virtual tour of the Discovery Museum!
School visits may be a little tricky at the moment, but we were delighted to have a virtual tour of the Discovery Museum this week. As part of our 'Homes' topic this term, Tom, a Learning Officer at the museum, helped us travel through different home exhibits dating from the Victorian period all the way to the 2000s. We loved looking at how different objects in the home, such as washing machines and TVs, had changed so much over time.
