That History Bloke – Richard Stephenson, came to visit Year 3 last week. We were very excited to welcome to our class because we are learning about Victorian times in History this half term and he had an exciting story to tell us about a miner who live in Felling during Queen Victoria’s reign. From looking at a rubbing Peter Barret’s grave stone and then examining the local census, the children were able to find out lots of information about his family and work, and even how he died! Everyone also enjoyed investigating the Victorian artefacts That History Bloke brought in to school to share with us. Year 3 really enjoyed learning about life in Victorian times but we are not sure that we would like to live in those times!
