The Y5 team managed to get some responses from the children at home via Google classrooms. This was carried out a full month after they have completed they work and they had lots of amazing things to say - take a look.
Nathan - Knowing what the steelworks was like and that there still is a steelworks.
Micah - I enjoy asking my grandparents about it because they tell me lots of information.
Jay - I liked it because it is talking about old Hartlepool compared to now. I also found it interesting because the steel works are very cool and you normally don't see steel works anymore.
Ashton - Learning about the steel works and comparing stuff. That Hartlepool is a port town.
Harriett – I liked learning about where we live and how people used to work. I now know that the ironworks were set up by Thomas Richardson.
Adam - I liked looking at the history of Hartlepool and finding out that my family and what they did.
Ava D - I enjoyed drawing a picture of the steel works. It was really fun.
Liam – I enjoyed learning about how Hartlepool used to be a fishing village and I enjoyed the picture I drew of the steelworks.
Neve - I enjoyed learning about where things were on the map.
