Year 8 & 9 visit the Black Country Museum

Pupils in Year 8 and 9 visited the Black Country Living Museum to discover more about the Industrial Revolution and its impact on Victorian society.

Pupils had a guided tour around the museum, learning about the role local people played in creating an industrialised Britain. The visit included a walk through an underground mine and a lesson in a Victorian classroom where pupils demonstrated their quick mental arithmetic. Fortunately, the class were spared the cane, as all pupils had clean hands and no nail varnish!
