We have been finding out about what life at Litton Mill was like. We visited Quarry Bank Mill to experience life as an apprentice.
We have looked at lots of different sources of evidence to answer the question was Litton always a lovely place to live?
We followed the course of the stream in Tideswell Dale to the river at Litton Mill, to inspire us to create images in our poems

The Storm composition
The Arctic composition
The Waterfall composition
The Great Lake composition
In art we have studied reflections at Litton Mill and Monet’s River Thames series to create our own paintings.
