Yr 6 Trip to the Charles Dickens’ Museum

The Year 6’s had a great morning learning about Charles Dickens’ life and his work in the house he used to live in! They sought specific information to answer questions as they toured the museum and sketched some of the exhibits. It was a fantastic representation of Victorian life and highlighted the differences between the way wealthy and poor people lived in those times.
