Class Play based on the Victorians

Class Play based on the Victorians

I wrote this to end our Victorian Topic. It takes about 15 minutes to perform and the parts can easily be reduced/combined or expanded/split to fit any class - currently 27. We performed in front of parents and the rest of the school. The play touches on farming, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Florance Nightingale and Doctor Barnardo as well as the poverty of the era. The 3 compères sat together at the side of the stage. The rest of the children all sat on stage on PE benches, and simply stood up to say their bit. Some of the parts needed children to act together. We only sang the first verse and chorus of Food Glorious Food. Two children started it off as solos. I used YouTube for the words and music, but it sounded better unaccompanied on the day, sounded great! All the children were in simple costumes. You may want to make reference to something to show the scale of the Crystal Palace, as our pub and church won’t be known to your audience! Our exhibition was work from and artifacts we made as a class.

Industrial Revolution

Industrial Revolution: A Wolsey Academy Scheme of Work on the Industrial Revolution. Target is KS3 but all assessments throughout are GCSE and use Edexcel criteria. Each lesson contains a lesson plan, quick start guide, printable resources, mini plenaries, challenge questions, mark schemes, writing frames, lots of differentiation, a nice mix of activity types and a lesson specific EAL activity sheet. There are 14 lessons in total, but each lesson has enough material to last 2 or 3 lessons for even high ability classes. Most lessons include some high-level source analysis. The lessons also include a link to a site hosting a self-marking End of Unit quiz and a revision guide which make for nice homework activities. The SOW has been used for several years (with continual updates and improvements) at a very successful History department in an outstanding school. If used at KS3 it also acts as a grounding for any History of Medicine modules they might encounter at KS4 (hence the focus on public health and inventions). The SOW covers the following topics: Introduction to the Industrial Revolution (free) Population Boom (free) Factories Coal Mining Transport Robert Stephenson Industrial Revolution inventors Child Labour Public Health Problems Public Health Solutions & Government Intervention Source Question on the Big Stink Luddites British Empire Source Question on Empire Revision Guide & EAL activities. Please visit www.wolseyacademy.com/history for more SOW and to access the Cardinal’s Corner blog which provides justification and commentary on this SOW and many others. Here you will also find access to the online end of unit test. Hope it helps.
