Welcome to our class page.
5S is a class full of eager learners who are keen to do their very best and enjoy finding out new things. I hope you enjoy seeing what we have been up to. Mrs Stott
History -The Victorians
This half term we have used historical sources to find out about the industrial revolution, Queen Victoria and life in the Victorian era for rich and poor people.
We created families, who were neighbours, and developed our characters within our family. Our families worked hard to survive in difficult circumstances. Then, disaster struck! Mr Urwin lost his job. No money, no rent. No rent, no home. Mr and Mrs Urwin wrote to us to tell us what had happened. They were in the workhouse, but had managed to sign their children over to Mr Greg at Styal mill to be apprentices. We pray for their future.
Trip to Quarry Bank
As part of our Victorians topic, we visited Quarry Bank. We focused on what life would be life for a Victorian apprentice, living and working for the Greg family. We toured the apprentice house to find out where the children would have lived and been educated. We tried some of the jobs that the children may have done in the mill- including scavenging, doffing and carrying the can. We experienced the noise of the mill and heard some gruesome tails of injury and death.
