Year 5's day as a Victorian child at Blists Hill

What an amazing experience we had! From learning about how horses were the main form of transport (as well as their use on farms), experimenting with Victorian money, to learning about how different the homes were (including at Christmas!), Year 5 had a jam packed day!

 

Blists Hill was an amazing way to put our learning into perspective and experience what it was really like in a Victorian town.

We have lots of exciting trips planned for this term to enrich our topic - In the Shadow of The Wrekin.

 

Last week, we explored the Wrekin with the Arthog team. After a challenging walk up a route that the Cornovi tribe might have taken, we sat and enjoyed lunch looking down on our local area.

 

We found out all about the Corrnovi tribe who inhabited the Wrekin many years ago. Children examined maps to visualise how the tribe entered their settlement and thought about how the entrances were guarded to keep out invaders. We then made our way back down, and then we visited the Wroxeter Roman Village. Here children compared the lives both tribes would have led, thinking about living conditions, food, water and amenities available.

 

 

A day in the life of a Cornovi child. Class 11's fantastic day at forest school linked to our Topic, in the Shadow of the Wrekin.

Here are some photos showing Class 11's experience of The Wrekin.
