Year 6 visited the Museum of London on Tuesday 20th September. The purpose of the visit was to discover how the trade in enslaved Africans and sugar shaped London.
The museum’s building is central to this story. It was built at the time of the transatlantic slave trade, to store the sugar from the West Indian plantations where enslaved men, women and children worked.
Children in Year 6 had the opportunity to look at first hand recounts of slaves and how they fought to abolish slavery.
