  13. I am so happy that this year our topic is the Victorians. So far my favourite lesson was where we went into further into the children at the workhouse and the mill and especially liked it when we wrote the diary enterance as a child from either the mill or the workhouse as i like to put a lot of detail in. I am looking forward to the railway trip!!!
