This week in Year 1 the children were surprised by a mystery box from the past. The box contained a selection of ‘seaside’ themed items and photographs, showing what life would have been like at the beach many years ago.
The children really enjoyed becoming historical detectives. They investigated the objects and discussed together what they may have been used for.
The photographs of the beach from the Victorian times were a particular favourite, as they had not seen many pictures from the past before!
We compared these old photographs with pictures of ourselves at the beach today and realised that times have really changed!
Well done, Year 1 for some fantastic topic work this week!
