Year 5 – Trip to Milestones

As part of out Victorian topic we visited Milestones Museum in Basingstoke.  The children completed two workshops: one on the industrial revolution and the other what it would be like to be a Victorian child.  There discovered children were to be seen but not heard and that the learnt the three R’s ( reading, writing and arithmetic). The children got to see first hand the types of vehicles that were around in the Victorian era. What the streets and buildings looked like and how they would have lived if they were poor or rich.  We had a great day and found out lots about Victorian Britain.
