In this live virtual session we explore the life of children in Victorian times, from the hardship of child labour to the revolutionary effects of school reforms. Pupils will learn about some of the most dangerous jobs children did; will observe how objects can help us to understand the past; will virtually step in a Victorian classroom and meet the teacher.
Children will be inspired using a variety of different resources, such as maps, objects, videos and photographs to understand how they can bring the past to life.
