Year 5 trip to Blists Hill Victorian Town

4 March 2013

On Monday 4th March Year 5 visited Blists Hill Victorian Town in Ironbridge.

Whilst there the children travelled back in time and learnt what life was like during the Victorian era. They had the opportunity to visit the shops and houses in the village. The children were able to exchange modern money to that used by people during the Victorian period. The children enjoyed spending this money in the shops and gaining a good understanding of the value of money then.

The children also dressed up as school children would have done back in Victorian times and had a lesson in a typical Victorian classroom.

The children really enjoyed going back over 100 years in time and were, as always, impeccably behaved.
