Children in Year 6 have written about their residential trip to Scarborough which took place from 3rd to 7th June. Extracts from two of their pieces are published below.


We arrived at school for 7.00am, said goodbye to our parents and set off on the coach. It was a fun but long and boring ride to the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.


First we went into one of the mines which was dark, cold and wet. Some of the people got scared because there were no lights, only candles to see by. Someone even stayed behind because they were too scared of the dark - not mentioning who (Mrs Willan!).


After the mine, we walked up to the top of the museum and took a tram down to the village, where we went to the old sweet shop and were told the ingredients for sweets in Victorian times. Arsenic and beetles!!


Next we went to the chemist, who told us about old medicine and making those medicines and tablets out of different chemicals. Just before lunch we attended a Victorian School. We did Maths and English. Will Mallen got the cane, but the teacher didn’t really hit him!


Then it was a long ride to the Green Gables Hotel in Scarborough
