Year 5 and 6 Children Celebrate the Life of Coalville Hero George Smith

23rd March 2021

The children in Koalas, Kangaroos and Tigers Class have been learning all about the life and times of George Smith (1831–1895). The children have learned how George campaigned for the rights of children who were working in Brickyards in Coalville to bring about changes to the law.
The children have written biographies based on his life and even drawn their own portraits. A fitting tribute to a man known as the children's friend.
