Life was hard!!!
Boys as young as 5 years old were sent down to coalmines!! Brunel built the Rotherhithe Tunnel, Dr Barnado's children's homes and schools.
As you can see from the photos we dressed up and had a fun time.
Our Beaulieu Trip!
During our trip to Beaulieu we went pond dipping, orienteering and watched a 'Birds of Prey' display! "My favourite part of the trip was the Birds of Prey, because I like the Peregrine Falcon, its one of the fastest birds ." said Joe.
The Food was great!
We also had a campfire where we toasted marshmallows , yummy!!
On the last day before we left for home we went to the beach and found some shells to identify.
