Curriculum Information

Our Key Skills topic for the Summer Term is ‘Pits and Mills’

All of our work will be centered around this topic. In History we will study Victorian life, especially children working in pits and mills. In Geography we will be researching Golborne and Wigan in the Victorian Era. We will be researching the Maypole Colliery disaster in Abrham and looking at the ecological effect of mining on the local area. We will create pieces of art based on pits and mills, looking in detail at the work of L.S. Lowry, experimenting with chalks and pastels.
