The team were transported to the 1840's at Sandford Award winning site- The Workhouse, Southwell in Nottinghamshire where we observed a very engaging KS2 session involving some really good role play. Prior to the children's visit, the year 5 group were given the name of a child who was really there. On their arrival, Master or Matron then ‘admitted’ them into The Workhouse and asked them their name, age and reason for going there. Pupils finished the day by taking part in a debate which sparked some really interesting discussions!
The Workhouse will be our hosts for our next recruitment workshop on Tuesday 9 May 2017- open to heritage sites across the East Midlands. See News and Events page for more information and booking details.
