Year 5 Summer 2 2023

We visited Woodhorn Museum to learn more about our local history. We learned about some of the dangers of coal mining in our workshop 'Danger! Danger!'. We learned about the Pitmen painters and had a go at recreating some of the artworks on show. We also had a tour of the colliery and made links to some of our learning on forces in science! We even got to take a sneak peak behind the scenes in the archives to see how the museum collections are stored and got VIP access to some areas of the colliery not normally available to visitors.
