The Boat Museum

 

On Wednesday 13th April, our Reception class visited Ellesmere Port Boat Museum and travelled back in time to find out what life was like over 150 years ago, living and working on the canals. The children were split into families from different time periods from 1840 up to 1950 and dressed in period costume. As you can see from the pictures they all looked fantastic and throughly enjoyed the learning experience. The children also visited the Blacksmith in his forge, learnt about canal horses and experienced what family life would have been like aboard a narrowboat.

We had such a busy day that many of us fell asleep on the coach journey home.
