Victorian Timeline Discussion

As part of our topic we have been learning all about the Victorians. So far we have learnt some basic facts about the Victorian children, for example the rich children paid to go to school and the poor children typically worked in factories or workhouses. We have learnt about Dr Barnardo and Lord Shaftsbury and how they were influential for the children back in Victorian times.

Now that we had some basic knowledge of Victorians, today we placed the main events on a timeline. We worked with our partners and had a good go at placing all the different times in the correct place- which is much harder than it sounds. As pairs the class worked really hard to discuss and reason as to where each event should be on the timeline.


After we had discussed our ideas, we placed the events on a specific timeline to display in the classroom. We were shocked by some of them- especially when the first Sainsbury’s was open!
