Year 3 went on a trip to the Museum of Liverpool.
The trip began with a visit to a reconstruction of Liverpool court housing in 1870. This court is in the Scotland Road area, one of the most overcrowded and neglected parts of Victorian Liverpool. Pupils discovered who lived here and what their lives were like. Bathing, washing clothing, privies and ashpits were all explored. The experiences of those living in cellars, which were the worst form of dwelling, was investigated.
The children explored what it was like to be a Victorian child labourer as they dressed-up as real children who lived in Liverpool. Ryan dressed-up as John Johnson a rope maker! Pupils used clues to identify a real or replica object that would have been used in their character’s job.
Year 3 enjoyed their trip to the museum and learnt lots about the Victorians. Click below to see the pictures from our trip in our School Gallery.
