Blist Hills Victorian Museum
LKS2 visited Blist Hill Victorian town to experience what life would have been like in Victorian times. The children and staff enjoyed going back in time to see what poor and wealthy homes were like, experience a lesson in a Victorian school and complete a candle dipping activity. The children visited the bank to exchange their £3 spending money for old Victorian pennies and farthings. It was really fun browsing the wide range of shops and seeing what their money would buy - although most money was spent in the sweet shop and bakery! Everyone looked fabulous in their Victorian costumes and it was a pleasure to receive lots of positive comments from the museum staff about the children’s enthusiasm and behaviour. Once again, a credit to BPS!
