Years 1& 2 visit Geffrye Museum
Years 1 & 2 recently visited the Geffrye Museum, where they looked at a typical Victorian living room and compared it to a 1990's living room.
Year 1 & 2 classes have been taking turns to visit the Geffrye Museum, where they have looked at a typical Victorian living room and compared it to a 1990's living room. The children looked closely at the items in the rooms and were able to touch some coal, candles, an old toaster as well as video tapes, a new toaster and a mobile phone. They sketched the rooms and did a detailed comparison back at school. Here are a few comments from children in 1/2R: D'iaz - “I held the candle in it's holder”. Tadhg - “I held the old Victorian toaster”. Zahrahbibi - “I saw a living room with tea cups. We pretended to drink tea like the Victorians”. Ethan - “Victorians toasted their bread next to the fire”. Georgie - “You had to use a candle for light and carry it in a metal candle holder”.
