Year 5 recently enjoyed two nights away in Ironbridge. Not only did children develop independence but the trip provided an immersive experience into the fascinating Victorian way of life. After the bus journey, children made tiles which they had planned in their art lessons and we look forward to receiving them in the post soon!

After their firsts night sleep and a cooked breakfast, Year 5 walked to Blists Hill Victorian town where children donned traditional uniform and experienced life as a Victorian child, writing on chalkboards and reciting times tables. After a visit to the sweet shop and candle dipping pupils walked along the muddy River Severn in to Ironbridge to buy ice cream. Next stop was Coalport pottery where they made clay owls using air dry clay. After burgers for dinner, they ate some sweets they bought earlier and had a movie night.
