Year visit Armley Mills Museum

Year 5 visited Armley Mills Museum yesterday as part of their history topic on the Victorians.

The boys took on the role of school children in an authentic Victorian classroom writing on slate boards and with dipping pens. Then they experienced the harsh and brutal conditions of working life in the mills.

One of the boys said: “I think it made us appreciate life as a child in the 21st century!”
