In the last week before half term, Year 6 headed to Beamish Open Air Museum as part of their topic work, studying the Victorian Era.

The children were able to explore the museum, visiting the 1913 town (including the sweet shop!), using the period transport such as trams and open top buses. They then headed to the pit village where they had to investigate the death of a young boy who had died at the local colliery.

This really helped us to understand the impact of the child workforce on the families at that time. We were also shocked at the dangerous conditions children were working under.
