To support our Tommy Armstrong – The Pitman Poet topic, we visited Beamish Museum to re enact the Oakeys Strike Evictions at the pit village. During the morning, we also put on our hard hats and went down the mine, we took a ride on a tram into the Victorian Town and had a quick lesson in a Victorian classroom.
100 word challenge… Can you write 100 words about this situation?
Imagine you are a poor mining family and that one cold November morning, you are evicted from your home. Your family and all your possessions are thrown out into the street. It is snowing and an icy wind is blowing. The back door is firmly locked and the key given to the Polis. You have no money and nowhere to go. What will happen to you all? How do you feel? Who will help?
Good luck 🙂
