Ironbridge

Description

Blists Hill, the largest open air museum in Britain, is an authentic recreation of a small Victorian town.

In this programme, we see a Year 5 class explore the town and interact with the demonstrator inhabitants.

The pupils, dressed in Victorian costume, watch a printer at work and participate in a hands-on workshop, type-setting and printing their own artwork.

They also experience a school lesson as it would have been in 1900, learning that discipline was strict, teaching inflexible and the class system rigorously enforced.

Back in the modern school, teacher Clare James talks about the trip and explains how she has integrated it into the term's work.
