Year 2’s Trip to the Black Country Living Museum

Thursday, 9 May 2019

To end our transport unit in History, on Friday 5th April 2019, we visited the Black Country Living Museum and found out all about the different types of transport used. We met the horses, saw a Blacksmith making nails, climbed inside a canal boat and rode on a double decker bus! We really enjoyed looking at the old cars and learning about different types of engines. Well done children, you were a credit to our school!
