Year 5 are currently reading and enjoying Goodnight Mr Tom. A trip to Beamish helped the children to experience how Tom felt as an evacuee. They learnt all about the jobs they would have to do on the farm including collecting eggs, looking after the animals and cleaning the animal enclosures.
They also met the home guard! They practised drills and marching which was really good fun, especially the order to engage the enemy.
The fun day was rounded off by a visit around the village and a lesson in the school. The desks and chairs were so different to the ones they were used to and they could not believe that to write they had to use chalkboard and chalk. I think a particular favourite part of the day was the ride around Beamish on the top deck of the tram.
