Year 3 and 4 at the Time and Tide Museum

On Monday 5th March Years 3 and 4 took the school minibus to Great Yarmouth to visit the Time and Tide museum.

We spent a little time walking around the galleries, but headed quickly to meet a rather particular Victorian lady, who spent some time explaining sea side holidays 100 years ago.

“She didn’t know anything about swimming costumes, but had beach huts that went into the water!” explained Molly.

“They only had ‘penny licks’ to eat, no ice cream cones,” recalled Brogan.

After our Victorian holiday we travelled forward through time to discuss some of the wartime challenges of life on the coast. The children tried out the air raid siren and explored the indoor air raid shelter.

Finally we moved forwards to the sixties and met the mods and rockers. We made for an intimidating sight as we strutted down to the beach to fight our ground!
