Queen Victoria’s reign (1819–1901) heralded a period of tremendous change, with Britain becoming the most powerful country in the world despite the huge gulf between rich and poor. This month’s Key Stage 2 creative topic focuses on this exciting era, and gives you all the ideas you need to make sure your class go from ‘we are not amused’, to ‘please sir/miss, can we have some more?’

This topic is most suitable for Key Stage 2 classes, however, many of the activity are also suitable for Key Stage 1. Differentation is included where required.
