Key Stage 3 and Victorian London

The content in the SNAPSHOT 1890's has been designed to support unit 12 of the KS3 QCA scheme of work. In particular the 12 separate studies of the inner London boroughs in the 1890s will allow students to study their own area and compare it with another part of London. Working through the 12 snapshots would allow the class to produce an overall picture of London in the late Victorian era - rich and poor, men and women, work and life, the impact of the railways, the problems of the police, new Londoners, prejudice in Victorian society, the list is endless. Each borough will eventually have an Excel and Information Workshop file of a set of 1891 census data which can be downloaded for the students to investigate.
