History

We had a fabulous time learning about houses and homes in the past on our visit to Staircase House. Mistress Catherine joined us from the past to show us around the house and we helped with her chores. We made up the wooden four poster bed for Lady Mary. We also made orange and clove pomanders and beeswax candles. We looked at the structure of the house; the house being made from wattle and daub. We constructed our own wattle and daub 'walls' from willow and clay, which  were remarkably sturdy. 

Our hands on activities continued into the afternoon when we visited the museum to look at artefacts from the past.

As an introduction to our theme of 'Great Explorers', the children were asked to think about what makes someone famous and were given 'famous' photographs to put into labelled groups. These are some of our ideas when it came to grouping faces from the past and present. 

What makes somebody famous? What are they famous for? Are they from the past or present? How can we tell?
