WE are hugely indebted to the wonderful Mrs Power Of St Cuthbert's RC Primary School Withington. Following our Withington Workhouse and

Industrial Revolution Workshop, Mrs Power asked if she could use Veronica's ancestors The Thornton family who were inmates in the workhouse as characters to weave a fiction write around.

This is an example of what her Year 3 pupils achieved! Well done Miss ! and Thank you!

To Yellow Brick Road 28th Jan 2014

Just a note to say thank you for a fantastic workshop.
The children really enjoyed learning about the Industrial Revolution together with sharing their own ideas and knowledge.

The children have used the story of Oliver Twist as a guidance and have written their own alternative versions. They have used the names of your relatives in the stories. Although I am sure their lives were very different to to the characters in the stories, it was a fantastic opportunity to be told something that is so very personal to you and enabled our chaildren to experience something real.

Thank you once again for a fabulous experience.

Mrs Power

An accurate transcript of one of the pieces of work from 7 year olds at St Cuthbert's RC Primary Manchester. Impressive work !

In 1837, there was a young frail orphan named Mary Agnes Thornton who lived in a cold damp Victorian workhouse which was dark as night . Mary Agnes caused upproar in the dining hall because she dared to ask for more bread. Mary Agnes was hauled to the governor's office and was ordered to leave. Mr Kranky was attempted to sell her in the foggy desolate streets . It was a freezzing cold morning and the ground was covered nearly ankle deep in filth and dirt.

"Girl for sale" shouted Mr Kranky.

Eventually she was sold to an blacksmith and his wife . Her new occupation was blacksmither. Her old friends from the workshouse sneered as she trudged by.
Sadly, Mary Agnes got in trouble with the blacksmith because he insulted her dead father.

"Your father is horrible" shouted the blacksmith.
Now Mary Agnes was trapped in a bitterly cold attic . "Let me out " cried Mary Agnes.
Mr Kranky was immediately called back to the shop and asked to take Mary Agnes away. On the way back to the workhouse Mr Kranky was approached by a well dressed lady who recognsied Mary Agnes as one fo her long lost relatives . The lady adopted her and took her home to live in her fine mansion.
