YOUNGSTERS from a Scarborough school laid the foundations for understanding the world around them after finding out about houses.

The Year One and Year Two pupils from Bramcote School visited Kirkbymoorside to see a new estate under construction, and found out how bricklayers, plasterers and electricians put a home together.

They then moved on to Ryedale Folk Museum to look at houses from years gone by, discovering many were built from wood and mud with homeowners sharing their space with animals.

Teacher Jane Eves said: “It is so important for children to see and experience the world around them, including manufacture and industry, and I would like to thank David Wilson Yorkshire East for accommodating us on the visit.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed it and discovered a lot about how modern houses.

“At Ryedale Folk Museum the experience of walking into homes from many years ago was fascinating.

“They were able to see and feel what life was like many years ago and compare it to living in today’s society.”
