Our Victorian topic explores what life was like for rich and poor Victorian families. We look at the lives of famous Victorians, and how inventions and different reforms have had an impact on our lives today.
This topic places a large emphasis on history. Indeed, we spend some time researching the history of our very own town Bangor, using information from the archive of the prominent Eaves family. If you haven't already done so, check out the main Y7 class page where you can see photos of our recent Victorian walk of Bangor.
In addition, we have been looking at the work of the artist William Morris. His work was often inspired by nature so we looked in our own Eco garden for leaves and flowers that we could use to incorporate in our designs. We then printed these in a variety of colours.
