Class 2 and 3 Ryedale Folk Museum visit


On Thursday 28th March classes two and three had a fantastic day at the Ryedale Folk Museum. The weather was great, and the children took a step back in time as they explored the site and had a look at a range of historic buildings from different periods in history. The day was linked to their topic “homes now, and in the past”, many of the children have recently designed and built a building out of cardboard boxes and tubing.

After speaking to children on their return their favourite part of the day was doing the jobs in the Victorian cottage – our children enjoyed – making the beds, cleaning the range, beating the rugs on the outside line and scrubbing the stones. It sounds like we have a group of children eager to get involved in jobs around the house!
