Year Three - Magpies


Visit to Claymills

We had an excellent time at Claymills Victorian Pumping Station to launch our Revolution topic!

We learned all about how steam was used to power engines which took dirty water out of the surrounding communities and put clean water back out. We got the chance to see the huge steam engines at work, we got to paddle in the old steam baths used by the Victorian workers and we even got to shovel coal in to the hoppers (with a little bit of help!).
