During Autumn 2, we will switch to learning about History; we will focus on the lives of the Victorians! During this unit, the children will be learning about significant events during the Victorian era and the impact that these events have had on British history, even through to the modern day. We will then look at different housing during the Victorian era and contrast lifestyles of the rich and poor in society at that period of time. Following this, we will discover the meaning of 'poor relief' and what that looked like for the Victorians, including the purpose of workhouses. Finally, we will find out what life was like as a Victorian and learn all about 'The Great Stink'!
At the beginning of every lesson, the children complete a retrieval task to check their understanding and to also build on their learning from the previous lessons.
