Trip To Beamish Museum

Trip To Beamish Museum


Key Stage 3 students have been studying the Industrial Revolution in their Humanities lessons so on 11th July they visited Beamish Museum. Students took a trip into the Mahogany Drift Mine and got a taste of just how dark and cramped conditions would have been for the miners working there. They took a look around the miners’ cottages and the Victorian school house as well as talking to the staff in the pharmacy, the bakery and the bank. Students got the chance to ride on a 1900’s tram, a 1950’s bus and a carousel.
