Local History Week 2023

As part of our Y3 Local History study, we were trying to answer the question: Who helped Hartlepool grow? As part of our enquiry, we invited some local Historians in to share some sources of information. We used these sources to find out more about Ralph Ward Jackson and Sir William Grey and how they helped shape Hartlepool. We enjoyed using our inference skills to form our own predictions of the past using lots of historical artefacts from Victorians times. As a special surprise, we even studied some exhibits from the natural world such as fossils and preserved creatures.
