We had a wonderful time at the Black Country Living Museum, learning all about the lives of children during the Victorian era.  The morning was spent back in we attended a school from the early 1900s.  It was very strange having the girls and boys sat separately.  The teacher was incredibly strict (one of our own TGPS teachers was given the cane), and the lessons were a little bit boring.  Although, we did have fun practising our handwriting on slate boards.

After lunch, we were allowed to investigate all of the different shops and homes. The guides were very impressed with us; they said we were enthusiastic and asked great questions!  The best part was getting to play with toys from over 100 years ago - many of the games felt very familiar.  

While exploring, we found out so many interesting facts about how people lived back then and we can't wait to find out more!
