Wellington Workhouse

Wellington Workhouse


Today we went to visit an old workhouse as part of our History and Literacy learning. In History we are learning about the Victorians and in Literacy we are reading the book Street Child. The main character, Jim Jarvis, has just been sent to a workhouse and it sounded horrific!

We wanted to see what one looked like in real life. The workhouse is now a care home and is actually a beautiful, inviting building...much different to what it used to be like!


Take a look at some of the pictures we drew.
