Historical Enquiry in to the Local Area

Historical Enquiry in to the Local Area

In Y5, we have been using the skills we have learnt in Geography and applying them to our History, to find out about life in the past from local maps, across the years.

We learnt many interesting facts, about how the area we live in has changed and why it’s changed. Did you know that the name of the local hospital has changed three times? And that the name of our school has changed and our school has expanded over the years. There was also a coal mine in the area with railway tracks leading to and from it… we think this was to transport the coal, which people would have used in their homes at the time. However, the coal mine is now no longer there.
