Year 5 Heritage Day

This week Year 5 took part in a heritage theme day in collaboration with Leeds Beckett University. Student teachers from the university joined Miss Clark, Mrs Hayton and the children to take part in a series of activities throughout the day that focused on their own personal history. The morning started by looking at the children's concept of heritage by looking at and talking about their teddies and special items from when they were younger. As the day progressed we looked at how this related to national history and the places and items that make up the history of England. The day was culminated by the children delving into the history of Farsley by looking at a series of maps and aerial photographs that documented how their local area had changed over time. The children really enjoyed looking into their personal history and talking about all the memories that make up part of that and we look forward to continuing our journey with Historic England and Leeds Beckett University in further heritage projects.
