Year 1 Visit to Bekonscot

Year 1 enjoyed a fabulous day at Bekonscot Model Village. The visit complimented our topic of ‘Changes within Living Memory’ beautifully. We saw many different types of transport and enjoyed a workshop with the Education Officer who delighted the children with some fabulous role play about travel in the olden days. We discovered how many buildings used to have thatched roofs and we enjoyed watching the miniature models of the fair and the many steam trains. It is always wonderful to hear the questions that the children ask, showing their curiosity about the world. We were blessed with superb weather, some wonderful parent helpers and we all learnt so much about how we used to live.
