Year 5 Step Back in Time – BCLM

Today, year 5 stepped back in time to experience life in Victorian Britain. We learnt about the hardship of miners, the struggles of school children and even got to see inside their homes and shops. An amazing opportunity! The children were wonderful and showed BH in the best light!

  1. What was your favorite part of the day?
    My favorite part of the day was when we went inside the mine because it was fun and a little bit scary; I liked it because it was warmer than outside.
    What did you learn?
    I learned that they had to work in very dangerous mines but now in the modern day, we have lots of machines to do all of the complicated work.
    Would you like to be a Victorian? Why or Why not?
    During this trip I decided I would not like to be a Victorian because their work was very hard and they had to do their job nearly all day.

  2. My favourite part of the day,was when we went in the mine.I learnt that, that when they did mining it was very dark.I would not like to be a Victorian because if you were a Victorian you would get whipped and if you were small you would go under gigantic machines .If you did the wrong move you will get crushed.

  3. My favorite part of the day was when we were at the mine.
    I learnt that it is called the black country museum because below the ground there was coal.
    I would not like to be a Victorian because in the mining area most of the Victorians would have died.

  4. What was your favourite part of the day?
    My favourite part of the day was going to the mines because it was warmer than the outside and when the scary parts came it was very funny.

    What did you learn?
    I learnt that in the mines you have to wear a helmet in case a rock falls on your head because if you don’t wear a helmet and and something falls on you your head will get crushed and you can die.Also in schools they didn’t have boards like we have mower days in the victorian times they had black boards also girls sat on one side and boys sat on the other side and girls have to go before boys also boys have to take their hats off and girls can leave them on I also learnt that they had very small shops like in the now er times we have massive super markets.
