Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

Fashion Flashback!

To kick off our Daring Designers topic this term, Year 3 had the pleasure of a visit from Mrs Jones to share her wealth of knowledge about fashion from the past.

  

She brought along a lovely selection of photographs showing us fashions from her grandmother's era up until the 1980's. The children were fascinated to see the difference in the type of clothes worn then compared to the fashion of today

 

The children learnt that in the 1950s and earlier, people had far fewer clothes as they were more expensive to buy than today. Primark did not exist! It was common to have three shirts, one you were wearing, one in the wash and one for the next day! Shirt collars were removable and could be replaced when they became dirty. People did not have automatic washing machines either!

Back in the classroom, we had a whole class discussion about the children's favourite fashion era and their reasons for their choice.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we intend to design and create some outfits of our own during the rest of this term.
