Victorians

Is it better for a child in Merstham in Victorian times or today?

This is the key question Year 6 will be exploring. As a year group, we will be comparing Merstham in Victorian times to present day. We will research key elements such as maps, photos, schooling, toys, housing and food to see what the difference was for children in Victorian times compared to today. We will use primary and secondary resources to help inform our decision, read literature from the time and will go on a local guided tour of Merstham idenitfying how it has changed over the years. This topic will climax with our very own Victorian dress up day. 

Spring 1

World War II

WWII

The date is the 1st September 1939 and England is at war. Year 6 will be exploring World War II through the eyes of children, considering the perspective of an English child who is evacuated, a German child who notices all these subtle changes around her and a Jewish child living in Germany whose life is turned upside down. We will be looking at primary resources such as diary extracts, photos and letters and reading fictional books based around the facts of the day. From this, in small groups, we will present our findings of what World War II was like through the eyes of children.
