For our first day back, 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 coal mine like some of the Victorian children would have had to do.
The children behaved well and it made for a memorable first day back!
