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.

Year 5 and 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 (available from January) 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.

Miss Squire’s niece, May, was a pupil at the school (see picture to the right).  

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."
