The Claypole Church of England Primary School

Strive for Excellence, Promote Harmony and Value Achievement

Wagtails

Welcome to Wagtails

This term we will be time-travelling back to the time when Victoria was Queen and Albert was Prince Consort. We will discover how reformers worked to transform the lives of working children.

Closer to home, we will be finding out about what life was like for the inmates of the Victorian Workhouse situated in Gretton Close, Claypole.

Make sure you are on your best behaviour though as punishments are unquestionably terrible!
