Learn about the Victorians


This website (link below) provides 'classroom-ready' learning activities for teachers of History Key Stage 2 based on two QCA Schemes of Work:

Unit 11 'What Was it like for children living in Victorian times?'
Unit 12 'How did life change in our locality in Victorian times?'.

Each Unit has 5 Topics and each Topic includes several learning activities. Each activity contains local history sources, plus Starter, Main & Plenary Activities, Children's Activity Sheets and Teachers' Notes.

The Source Gallery has around 400 local photographs, pictures, newspaper articles, posters, book extracts, charts, data tables etc which can be used independently of the activities. All the sources and resources may be downloaded, saved and printed for educational or private use free of charge*.

The project has been organised and researched by staff at West Sussex County Council Library Service and local teachers, and the website is hosted by the West Sussex Grid for Learning.
