The children from Year 1 had a fantastic, sun shining, day at Beamish Museum to finish off their work on homes in the past and present.  They spent the morning in one of the pit village cottages doing the household chores which included bed making, dusting, scrubbing pans and the hardest job of all the weekly washing.  We also got the chance to visit the school, the church, the shops and some of the houses in the town.
