This workpack is designed as an aid for you in the classroom, both with academic and  practical work.  

 

We have tried to cover some of the most prominent issues of the topic, and these have been grouped into the following sections:

 

                     ‘VICTORIAN’ ENGLAND?                              VICTORIAN TIMELINE

 

                           NOTABLE PEOPLE                                    CHILDREN & WORK

 

                       THE INDUSTRIAL  AGE                     THE POOR & THE WORKHOUSE

 

                  WOMEN’S PLACE IN SOCIETY                      THE GREAT EXHIBITION

 

                               FOOD & DRINK                                              THE MONARCHY

 

                     VICTORIANS ACTIVITIES                         DOWNLOADABLE WORKSHEETS

 

We’ve included some ideas for exercises and activities in each section but don’t feel that you need to follow just these ideas -  treat them as a starting point for your own, and the childrens, development of the themes in the play.

Blimey guv'nah, I'm a Victorian, I am!
