Year 5 Visit to Saltaire

Year 5 Visit to Saltaire

Year 5 had the opportunity to visit Saltaire last week and we absolutely loved it! Saltaire is named after Sir Titus Salt who built a textile mill, known as Salts Mill and this village is situated on the River Aire. Designed by architects, Lockwood and Mawson, Salts Mill was opened on Sir Titus Salt’s 50th birthday, 20 September 1853. In December 2001, Saltaire was designated a World Hertiage Site. Our trip was linked to our learning about the Victorians. We had a guided tour of Saltaire and were each given the role of a Victorian citizen. We then visited the houses we would have lived in if we had been alive during the Victorian period. After that, we did a tour of the famous David Hockey art gallery which is situated in the Mill. We really enjoyed our trip. Please do look at the photos so that you can share our experience.
