Reception’s Blists Hill Experience! Reception walked to Blists Hill to find out about living a long time ago in Victorian Britain. We visited the school, the mines, and many shops and houses. We thought about what it would be like to go to the toilet in the garden… Work in the dark mine with the rumbles of explosions… Be hit with a cane for talking in school! We agreed we are glad to live “now” instead of “a long time ago” even though Victorians were super inventors.
