Trip to Colne Valley Railway

Year 2 recently had a wonderful day as Victorian children visiting the Colne Valley Railway's Victorian Experience. 

They enjoyed watching the Punch & Judy show and had fun dancing to the fairground organ, which created a lovely atmosphere. they learned about steam trains and signals and even had a ride on one. They also looked at Victorian first aid.

Finally they found out what it was like to be a child in a Victorian classroom with a very strict teacher.  They were pleased to be going to school in 2016!  With all the other sights, sounds and experiences, their history topic was truly brought to life.
