Our first context for this term was Children of the Revolution we explored life during the Victorian era. We were amazed to discover some of the things that were invented during this time for example the first electric railway and the telephone. Life for poor people was vey hard and lots of children had to work in factories, or mines. Some children did go to school but schools could be very harsh for children in Victorian times. We used our research to make a double bubble map to compare and contrast life in schools then and now:
To end our context we received an invitation to attend a tea party with Queen Victoria. She wanted us to research a famous Victorian and to come to the party dressed as that person. Take a look at the gallery to see who we came as.
