Congratulations to our Year 6 children who visited Wilberforce House Museum in Hull on Thursday. As part of their current topic on the Transatlantic Slave Trade, this field trip provided a valuable opportunity for them to deepen their understanding of this significant historical period.
The highlight of the visit was a workshop at Wilberforce House that proved to be exceptionally informative. By examining various artefacts, many belonging to Wilberforce himself, the children were able to discover what he was like and about his beliefs and values. It engaged them in thought-provoking discussions and interactive activities shedding light on the intricate history of the Transatlantic Slave Trade. This immersive experience allowed our children to connect with the past and comprehend the human stories behind the historical facts.
Our Year 6 students left the museum with a wealth of knowledge about the Transatlantic Slave Trade. They learned about other brave abolitionists, who fought to end this inhumane practice. The trip also helped them gain a deeper understanding of the impact of slavery on individuals and communities on both sides of the Atlantic.
Well done to all the Year 6 for being great ambassadors of the school. They were engaged, inquisitive, and respectful throughout the workshop and their exploration of the museum exhibits.
We are confident that this experience has enriched their learning and will have a lasting impact on their understanding of history, social justice, and the importance of standing up for what is right.
