The Impact of the Railways

For our History topic this half term, the Owls have been learning about steam railways. On Tuesday 19th November, we learnt about the impact that the steam railways had on Britain. Firstly, the children had to sort statements about the effects of the railways into positive and negative effects. Next, each group was given a historical figure from the period and had to prepare and present a debate, in role as that character, explaining their opinion about the railways. The children worked really well in their groups and gained a greater understanding of different viewpoints on historical events. Well done Owls!
