The World of Beatrix Potter
Our history topic this term, took us to the magical world of Beatrix Potter and Friends. We learned all about the life of Beatrix Potter from childhood to old age. Spending time in class researching her life, the places in Cumbria she visted with her family on holiday, and the place she finally settled in her old age.
We enjoyed visiting the Beatrix Potter attraction in Bowness on Windermere, but the most exciting part of the trip was getting to visit her house at Sawry.
As we ambled through the old rickety house, we were astonished to see that Beatrix Potter had used her own house as the setting for many of her tales.
