Adlington Primary's 180th Birthday Celebration!
All term we have been learning about the History of Adlington. Children had opportunities to explore Victorian leisure activities, life at home and health. We learnt lots of interesting facts such as, on Sundays children were only aloud to play with Noah's Ark as it was a religious toy!
We had a trip to Lancashire Archives where we began our journey. There were maps of the local area dating back to the 1800's and we became 'History Detectives', finding clues as to when our school was built. Once we gathered all our knowledge we came back to School with a challenge to find out even more about our local area!
Here are some pictures of the day we celebrated our Birthday. Our theme was the 1920's (if you can't already tell).
