Y6 visit Liverpool Slavery Museum

On Thursday, Year 6 ventured across the Pennines towards the maritime city of Liverpool, to enrich their knowledge on the Transatlantic Slave Trade at the International Slavery Museum. Firstly they encountered the Freedom Sculpture and Freedom Wall, then they headed off to immerse themselves in Pre-colonial West African culture, learning about the Igbo tribe of Nigeria. After, they watched a video depicting the voyage across the Atlantic which showed the horrendous conditions aboard the ships. Next they viewed a replica model of a Caribbean Plantation and learned how harsh the life of an enslaved plantation worker was. Finally, before lunch the children explored the legacy of the Transatlantic trade and then found familiar faces on the Black achievers wall.
