Throughout Autumn 1, Year 6 have been learning about The Victorians during afternoon curriculum lessons. So far, we have learnt about the Industrial Revolution and the six main reasons for its growth and success during the Victorian period. We have also researched and written about Victorian inventors such as Alexander Graham Bell who patented the early telephone and Lewis Howard Latimer who worked closely with Bell. We have learnt about The Crystal Palace which housed over 100, 000 items and received more than six million visitors whilst it was open. We will be building on our learning next half term to research and discover information about Isambard Kingdom Brunel and his breakthrough inventions such as The Great Western Railway. Throughout our topic, we will continue to build on our knowledge and understanding of the Victorian era in order to know more and remember more.
