On Tuesday, Year one went on a fantastic trip to the Bradford Industrial museum. This trip started of with the section Jowett cars, where they looked at the first ever Jowett car to be made. They also got a chance to see the first Bradford van that was used to deliver the daily newspaper.
Secondly, Year 1 went to see the textile industry where they saw how the Victorians made clothes out of wool. This helped them to understand how the Victorians provided themselves with clothes.
Thirdly, they experienced how the Victorians used the printing machine of their day to print the daily newspaper. This was extremely different to what we use now in modern day.
Later on, they took a look at how workers and mill owners lived back then. Their houses were also different to modern day. These houses were made out of brick and stone, which is different to how they build them now.
Finally, they learnt how to wash clothes with a pillar designed by the victorious . They all got to take part in this event. It sounds like a great day and I am sure they had a brilliant time.

On Wednesday, Year 2 went to the church in Idle where they met Mr and Mrs Frowd. Firstly, they read the Bible but they had to wear white gloves. They then looked at other things that are precious to Christians like the thorn crown and wine glasses.
After that, the children got a little rest before learning about new things. They first got told to sit on the floor and listen very carefully before the person started telling a story about Mary Jones. She wanted a bible but she couldn’t because there were non in welsh. So she walked 25 miles just to get a bible in welsh. She was also saving money for 6 whole YEARS!
It sounded like a fascinating trip and we’re sure Year 2 had a great time!

Here are some top tips on how to stay safe around Bonfire Night:
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU CARRY FIREWORKS IN YOUR POCKET!
THEY COULD SET OFF!
~You should always keep all of your pets indoors
~ You should make sure that there is somebody with the pets because they could get scared from hearing the bang from the fireworks
~Don’t go too close to the fireworks and always make sure that there is an adult with you
~To stay extra safe, make sure that your hand is at the end of the wire
~When the sparkler has finished don’t touch the burned end because you could get burned hands that will scar
~Always make sure that an adult is closer to the fire than you are
~If possible ask the organiser to put safety tape around the bonfire
~Don’t go near the fire
