Year 6 @ Holy Family

Class of 2017/18


Posted by Mr Waywell on Dec-17-2017

As part of our Victorian topic, Year 6 took a visit to Blackpool library to learn about how Blackpool changed in Victorian times.

  • We looked at some old maps to see how Blackpool town centre changed during the era.
  • We learned about the building of South Pier from a Victorian copy of the Gazette
  • We found some Victorian names and occupations using an 1891 Census record
  • We found out that there were many reasons for children taking time of school, including small pox and planting potatoes!
  • We looked at old photos to see how Blackpool Tower and the Winter Gardens was built
