What a super day we all had on our trip to the Black Country Living Museum today. We learnt what life was like for people during times without the great inventions we have now such as electric lights and flushing toilets. We had a tour of the shops, a trip in a canal boat, saw iron chains being made and compared homes of rich and poor people. The children were shocked to learn that babies slept in drawers and 8 people shared one bedroom in one of the homes we saw. The children's favourite room was definitely St James's School where the children had a Victorian lesson. The lesson did not end well for Mrs James and Mrs Edney who were on the wrong end of the cane. Throughout the day, the children made us proud by the way they behaved and the interest and enthusiasm they showed towards the museum staff.
Well done to all of Green Class.
Mrs James, Mrs Edney and Mrs Marks
