This week we will continue looking at the Victorian era in history. Last week you investigated different objects to deduce information about the past. This week we will see whether our predictions were right or wrong!


Teaching and Learning:

Work through the teaching slides to recap last weeks learning on history. Look at the timeline and spot the mistake. Can you unscramble the timeline so the historical events are in the correct order? Remember that the dates give us a clue to help us order things!

Look at a range of pictures either within the teaching slides or from the 'investigating history' attachment. Have a look at each of the objects and remind yourself of your prediction. Once you have refreshed your memory, can you use the names of the objects below to match the image to the name.
