We bring learning to life

If you’ve been to Sevington before, you’ll know that it recreates the past in a unique way. It offers children a profound learning experience, in which all the senses are engaged. 

“There is nothing like being in an authentic building with all the artefacts to aid learning."

Christchurch Primary, Hanham

And it's still in the history curriculum...

Key Stage 1

  • Significant historical events, people and places in the locality.

     

Key Stage 2

  • A local history study.

     

  • Changes in an aspect of social history.

     

     

     

Developing Literacy Skills

Sevington provides the perfect context for teaching English, too. Whether your aim is to extend research skills or to develop a range of writing for different audiences, the immersive experience of a day at Sevington provides a great starting point. 

Here’s how we can help...

  • An introduction to non-fiction books. 

     

  • Writing narratives about different experiences.

     

KS 2 - Year 3 & 4

  • Using contents pages and indexes and combining information from more than one source.

     

  • Writing for a range of purposes.

     

KS 2 - Year 5 & 6

  • Developing information retrieval skills.

     

  • Organising and structuring text.

     

     

     

 

Learning Opportunities

Preparation and follow-up work provides rich opportunities for learning, based on an unforgettable experience.

Before the visit

Finding out about Victorian schooldays prepares children to enter into their roles, while developing information retrieval skills.

Our downloadable resource packs are closely linked to the revised English curriculum. Fact sheets and documents about Miss Squire and her pupils encourage children to gather information from a range of sources and organize their findings.

After the visit

We know from our feedback that children come back from Sevington bursting with ideas. It’s an ideal opportunity to develop the skills of writing whether through writing an account of the day (Key Stage 1) producing a story in the first person, using information from our pack (lower Key Stage 2), or producing an information book for younger children (upper Key Stage 2).

“The experience aided their writing project, as well as bringing to life our topic about the Victorians."
