Terms 3 and 4 = As part of our Location, Location, Location topic, we looked at how houses have changed over time. The children found it fascinating learning about life in the past in terms of how light, washing and heating facilities have changed. We tried to imagine using dolly tubs and a mangle to wash and dry our clothes, having a bath in a tin tub in the middle of the kitchen and seeing by candle light. Worst of all ... no Play Stations or X Box!! We think the children were quite relieved to be born in the 21st century!
Term 2 = In History we have been learning about toys in the past and the types of material they were made from. I don't know how the children would cope without their Play Station and X Box games nowadays!!
