Year 5 Travel Back in Time

The Year 5 children today got to experience life as scholars at Moorside Board School. During our trip to Bradford Industrial Museum, the 2 classes got into character as Victorian schoolchildren and were able to try out ink dip pens, do arithmetic using slate boards and pencils, to sing authentic hymns and songs and to recite poetry.

When not in the schoolroom, we enjoyed touring the various Victorian exhibits in the museum – especially seeing some of the mill machines in action and comparing life in a back-to-back terrace with the luxurious rooms of the Mill Manager’s house.

Well done to all the children for representing the school so well and fully engaging with the activities on offer. We hope you had a great time. And a big thank you to our parent volunteers on the day and to all home adults for helping to dress the children in such splendid Victorian outfits!
