This scheme of work for LSK2 has been devised especially for Plazoom by teacher/author/trainer Debra Kidd, and is based on exploring the lives of children in Victorian England. It includes planning and resources to cover up to a half-term of learning.

This resource pack includes:

  • Teaching notes
  • Image from a Victorian newspaper
  • Image of an inglenook fireplace
  • Timeline information cards
  • Newspaper clippings
  • Poem: The Chimney Sweep’s Complaint
  • London street scene images
  • Orphan fact file example, images and template
  • Grace Darling images
  • PowerPoint teaching slides

Cross-curricular subjects covered:

  • The life of a chimney sweep and reform to child labour laws
  • The Earl of Shaftesbury and social reform
  • Life in Victorian times
  • Grace Darling and her life in a lighthouse
  • Timelines and chronology
  • Information texts and an introduction to Charles Dickens
  • The industrial revolution and the impact on labour and movement of people
  • Inventions in the Victorian period

    This is one of a set of five packs, covering Reception to Year 6 (with the final pack having strong potential for transition activities), each with a different focus, and all offering plenty of opportunities to weave literacy learning across the curriculum in a story-sharing context.

  • Teaching notes
  • Image from a Victorian newspaper
  • Image of an inglenook fireplace
  • Timeline information cards
  • Newspaper clippings
  • Poem - The Chimney Sweep's Complaint
