Living history: Our Viking Experience

Living History: In 1887, the Prince and Princess of Wales honour Tatton with a visit. To help with the preparations, we were recruited as extra servants.

Tingatinga paintings originated in Tanzania by the artist Edward Saidi Tingatinga in 1968. Edward began his work painting under a Baobob tree. His work consisted of bright, bold colours, simplistic designs, inspired by his surroundings.

Black History Month – today we learned about African culture through art and dance activities.

Shadows investigation

Today, we are imagining ourselves as Victorian servants and maids and painting our pictures.

At Quarry Bank, we explored the Industrial Revolution and discovered what it was like to be a child apprentice. Home to the pauper children who worked in the mill, we went in the Apprentice House which is a recreated ‘home’ where we experienced life in the past. From the strict lesson in the schoolroom to seeing the grisly medical treatments of the day, we really experienced Living History.

The children looked at photographs of spectacular examples of coastal stacks, caves and arches and painted using watercolours.

We met our buddies this afternoon and spent time getting to know one another.

Our Eroding coast learning day out. Formby is one of the most rapidly changing sections of coastline in England. Over the past 50 years close to 200 metres has been swept from the front of the sand dunes by tidal erosion. Year 6 have been learning about this problem and the coastal management strategies used at Formby.

How does light travel? We had fun experimenting together.
