The BCSC are thrilled to be supporting Black Country Living Museum’s History at Home project.

This week’s BCLM History at Home explores the lives of Black Country children in the 19th and early-20th centuries.

In addition to the video and interactive Powerpoint, there are also blogposts exploring  some of the museum’s archival images of Black Country childhood and the life of 8-year-old Lillian Hodgkiss.

These new resources have been specially designed to support families in providing quality and engaging learning content for KS1-2 learners in their own homes, all with a Black Country twist! Right now, you can learn about the lives of coal miners and the dangers they faced or discover more about life on the canals – expect plenty more exciting themes over the coming weeks.
