Black Country Living Museum

Another very busy week for Eagles class! The children wrote some thrilling Gothic tales in Write Here, Write now, centred around the character of Obsidian Blackbird McKnight. Some had him as a ghost hunter, some as a spy - one even had him as an evil villain bent on world domination! On Tuesday we went to the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley; a 'living' village set in the Victorian and early C20th eras. All of the volunteers we met at the museum were pleased we had dressed up and said how much they appreciated it - thanks to you, parents. We went in houses which were kept true to period and learned about life inside them, went down a mine and had a Victorian school session. Wednesday saw the annual Big House Read in which the children shared their favourite books. On Thursday we had a visit from PC Palmer who led a fascinating session on internet safety; it was very interesting to hear about what the children get up to online.
