    Chesterfield Museum Visit

    On Monday 4th November, Year 5 visited the final resting place of George Stephenson (inventor of the passenger train) and Chesterfield Museum. Despite the weather, the children had a brilliant time and were able to enhance their understanding of the Victorian era. Whilst at the Holy Trinity Church (resting place of George Stephenson) Reverend David Horsfall showed the children significant areas in the church for GS.

    After this, the children braved the weather once more to visit Chesterfield Museum where they: completed a George Stephenson trail, held artifacts from the period and crawled through a mine shaft like some of the Victorianchildren would have had to do.

    The children behaved well and it made for a memorable first day back!
