P5/6’s Visit to New Lanark
On the 21stof February 2012 P5/6 went to visit a Victorian village called
New Lanark for their Victorian topic.
When they arrived they were split into groups and the first part of the tour was to a Victorian classroom.
To everyone’s surprise they got taught as Victorian school children and got to dress in Victorian school clothes and even boys wore dresses!!!
Next was a ride called the Annie McLeod Experience. The ride tells visitors how Robert Owen made sure that the children in his mill were educated. Annie McLeod was a Victorian child who narrates the journey. It was an interesting story. After that it was lunch. They had to eat really fast because they had a lot more to see!!
When they’d finished they got to go and see a movie called Harmony and it was even more interesting information about the Victorians!!
Finally they went to the gift shop before they went home.
