Victorian Invention Home Learning Projects
Our topic for the Autumn Term is the Industrial Revolution. The Victorian period saw many major developments that made travel, communications and trade easier for many people. The railways allowed people to travel cheaply and rapidly, opening up new possibilities for both rich and poor. The postal service expanded after the introduction of the 'Penny Post'. Many of the things we take for granted today, such as photography, telephones, electric light bulbs and cars were invented during Queen Victoria's reign. Over the summer, Year 6 researched Victorian inventions of their choice and then brought in their work. There was an incredible range of mediums: models, powerpoints, posters, collages, and films which showcased inventions such as the toilet, jelly babies, the penny farthing, the camera, steam engines and the telegraph! The children shared their learning with both classes and then we created an amazing display for our corridor. We are so impressed by the talent, creativity and resourcefulness of this Year 6!
