Y4's Trip to Kelham Island Industrial Museum
Date: 7th Oct 2021 @ 3:20pm
It's been SUCH a long time since we went on a trip so we were very excited to be going on a coach to Kelham island Industrial Museum today. It was the perfect place to go as we have been learning about the Industrial Revolution in history, and electricity in science, as well as our class reading book 'Forged in Steel.' We saw the enormous Bessemer Converter, and the very impressive River Don Engine which is the largest steam engine in Britain, and was actually working! It was so loud it gave us quite a shock! We also saw the tiniest scissors, a saw which was made for Queen Victoria's daughter, countless saws, tools and cutlery, and a creation made of over two thousand steel blades! On top of this we saw old fashioned cars (in particular, the Sheffield Simplex car), and took a walk down a Victorian street. Not to mention the Grand Slam Bomb! What an amazing array of artefacts!
