Now and then: School

Now and then: School

There are two sets of photographs of a school. The black and white photographs are from Victorian times (around 1900) and show the outside, classroom and a school photograph. These photographs are part of the archive of the Essex Record Office. The colour photographs were taken at the same school today (2017), following in the Victorian photographers footsteps as closely as possible. There is very little interpretation, but there are a few observations and ideas in the notes section. I hope that you will make these resources your own. I'd love to know how you used them. Contact me on heritage.education@essex.gov.uk I wasn't able to add a cover image (not sure what I'm doing wrong) - so I've added my youtube video showing who I am and what I do (when I'm not sharing resources for schools). Thanks, Valina Bowman-Burns Learning from History Essex Record Office

Victorian Bundle

Victorian Bundle

This is my Victorian bundle. It is an interesting collection of different resources. In some ways, Victorians were similar to us, in other ways, they held very different opinions to modern Britons. These presentations are a great way to get the students talking in the classroom. They can discuss the dresses and toys and guess what the different household objects were used for.

Transport Bundle

Transport Bundle

This is a set of presentations about different forms of transport. The presentations would be a great way of getting a class to use a wider range of descriptive terms, especially when it comes to describing colours, the locations and the number of wheels they can count. This a good way to introduce the topic of cars and transport. I have also included two 'Talk a lot' teaching units about transport and cars. Finally, I also included the car free day presentation, to see how many different forms of transport the children can identify. Ask your students to describe what are the pros and cons of using each type of transport.
