Nottingham Industrial Museum

Year 5 had a brilliant learning away experience at Nottingham Industrial Museum. We are very grateful to the volunteers who shared their knowledge with us, helping us to learn lots of interesting facts. We were amazed to see real machines that they used in the past to make cloth and to see the size of the steam engines.
