Welcome to Year 3! I'm very excited for the year we have ahead of us and we are starting it off by looking at Mills. More specifically Mills in Heywood and why they have slowly disappeared. You will look at the life of the workers in these mills, particularly the children and the type of work they would have been expected to do. You will end the term with a visit to Quarry Bank Mill and have the opportunity to see the equipment they used and conditions for yourself.

Today, this terms topic of ‘Where did all the Heywood Mills go?’ was introduced and we started by looking at some pictures of Mutual Mills and we found out that some of our relatives even worked there. Next we watched some videos about Quarry Bank Mill where we would be visiting in October. After our discussion, the children worked in groups to record the questions that they wanted to find the answers to this term.
