Griffin Class spent a fantastic day in the village of Eyam learning about the plague.
Each group was challenged to visit a number of sites around the village in order to gather information about what life may have been like there during the plague years. Children used I-Pads to access maps and instruction sheets and also to record their visit through note taking and photography.
One group were lucky enough to have a chat with the current occupiers of the cottage where the plague is believed to have started its devastating journey. She said she felt very privileged to live in the village and that it was an honour to live in her particular cottage. She said that she enjoyed meeting visitors to the village and telling them all about the plague. Apparently there are still members from three families living in the village who lived there during the plague! We found out that they don't still have the plague!
