Children have travelled back in time to the Victorian age when canals were being built.


During this topic, children will be exploring what a canal is and how they were made. We are going to be visiting the local Dudley Canal and Caverns as part of our history topic so children can experience and understand what a canal is. 


Here are some things we will be learning about:


  • What is a canal
  • How were they made?
  • Who made them?
  • Who lived on the narrowboats?
  • What was life like on the narrowboats?
  • How have things changed on canals now.
