Learning Outside The Classroom

Autumn 2 Term

Salford Museum


Year 5A have been reading and writing about Ebenezer Scrooge from The Christmas Carol. The story has been very popular and it was set in Victorian Britain.  To embrace the tale, we visited Salford Museum where we were able to relive the atmosphere of the life of Victorian people which would have been in the time of Ebenezer Scrooge.


We turned into Time Detectives and Artists at the Salford Museum & Art Gallery.  We took a tour of Victorian Street and carried out detective work in pairs to discover how different historical sources can help us to find out how people lived in the past and what life would have been like in Victorian times.  Then, we were went to art gallery where there were famous Victorian paintings were displayed on the wall with some of Victorian objects/artefacts in the glass cabinets.  We had so much fun re-drawing these pictures in our very own version.


We’re so fortunate and proud to have such a magnificent and historical building in our wonderful City of Salford.
