    Despite the appalling weather, KS2 had a fabulous time at Beamish. Year 6 went down the mine to find out what life was life working in those dark, damp and dangerous conditions. Year 4/5 had hands on experience of being a working child in Victorian times and Year 3/4 found out, that the Victorian classroom is not an easy place to be for a small child! The children were an absolute credit to the school and even though they were wet and cold, they smiled throughout the day!
