Year 1 Visit to Milestones Museum

Year 1 had a fantastic day of 'hands on' learning at Milestones Museum in Basingstoke bringing history to life. The children were so engaged taking a trip back in time for the day, walking the historic cobbled streets, looking at the vintage buildings and visiting old sweet shops. Our young historians also reinforced their learning of their History topic 'toys in the past' with 'I spy' games, guessing the age of toys with timelines, handling 100 year old dolls and dressing up as Victorians.

Further highlights of our annual fun day out was as always the exciting bus trip and buying souvenirs in the gift shop!

This term the History focus moves onto 'famous people in the past'. Continuing the Junior School's RNLI charity theme the children have been learning about the famous rescuer of the sea Grace Darling. Year 1 have enjoyed 'hot seating' (acting out) Grace Darling and also celebrating what would have been our heroine's 200th birthday this week!
