As part of the Year 4 and Year 5 Geography topic, Teams JD, LF and DB visited the local area of Wombwell and linked it to their history topic.
By visiting Wombwell, the children had the chance to experience snapshots from the past, including the cemetery, shops, pubs, churches, memorials, housing, and other significant landmarks.
The walk was self-guided, and they made sure to see as much of the village as we possibly could. They made note of the some of the dates on the buildings and we observed that the majority of the houses were terraced and some of them dated all the way back to 1895. The children also learnt that many homes would have once housed the miners from the area.
The children were amazed at the historical aspects of the village as well as commenting on the art-deco window frames found on the older buildings in Wombwell.
