Visit to Helmshore Textile Museum

On a fine, sunny September morning we strolled down to the museum for a day of learning and fun.  We found out about the water wheel and how it moves. We learned about life in the mill for children and felt lucky to be at school rather than working in a noisy, cold and dirty place!  We had great fun carding the wool and investigating spinning. We loved making our colourful felts in the workshop to bring home as a memory of the day. Thank you to the museum staff who welcomed us, we had a lovely day and everyone enjoyed their picnic together.
