The Victorians

What we will be learning:

 

Here the children will consider a local history study that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066 in British History. They will explore the Victorian era, in particular, the impact of the Industrial Revolution within our local and national area. It will focus upon the significant turning point in British history and consider the following:

 

  • know and understand the history of these islands as a coherent, chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day: how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world
  • understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses
  • understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used rigorously to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed
  • gain historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts: understanding the connections between local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, and social history; and between short- and long-term timescales
