Anston – Now and Then

During the week beginning 25th July, we held a whole school local history and geography week. As part of this, all children from Year 1 to Year 6 visited the National Coal Mining Museum near Wakefield. We had a superb day, visiting the pit ponies and pit baths, finding out what life was like for Victorian child miners and experiencing a fascinating underground tour in the company of a miner. Oh … and there was a great playground too!

A huge thank you to all those parents and grandparents who filled in our survey. We found it extremely interesting to discover what life was like when you were ten.
