Topic - Wigan Coal Mines


As part of our Wigan topic today we are looking at what the coal mining industry looked like in Wigan. Follow the link to the map of Wigan. Then watch the BBC bitesize clip all about children working down the mines. Consider what those children may have felt like working in those conditions. 


Can you complete a drawing similar to the example? Think about the thoughts and feelings of the miners working down those coal mines.
