Year 4 have enjoyed a wonderful trip to Armley Mills today as part of our local history study and our work in English. Whilst there, pupils participated in two workshops. One was a living history experience to discover what life was really like for children in Victorian schools. In character, pupils learned the 3 R’s in a typical Leeds schoolroom in 1887 under the watchful eye of Miss North, the school Ma’am, as well as participating in a PE lesson unlike the ones we teach today! The second workshop focused on local history through a fun, interactive session. They were given jobs that children would have carried out in the mill all the years ago and experienced what it was like to live, dress and work as a child during the height of the Industrial Revolution at Armley Mills.
