I have designed two trips for students to explore Elizabethan and Victorian London, making close links to literature throughout. They are excellent prep for GCSE Lit study.
These trips are walking tours around small sections of London (1 sq mile) with numerous wonderful sites for students to engage with and learn rich details about London in both periods.
There are numerous tasks and puzzles for students to complete at each location - all information needed to complete the tasks is available to find at the locations. Tasks are linked to literature.
These print as A5 booklets ready for students to take on the trip and complete. Some slides with notes for teachers (to help prompt answers) need to be deleted before giving to students.
Victorian trip - Crossbones Graveyard, Borough Market, London Bridge station, London Bridge, John Keats house and memorial, Old Operating Theatre, Ragged School site, Redcross St. Making links to: Dickens, Romanticism, Shelley, Mayhew, Blake, Stevenson.
Elizabethan - Golden Hinde, Winchester Palace, The Clink Prison, Rose Theatre, Globe Theatre, Southwark Cathedral, Tower of London. Making links to Shakespeare’s plays.
Locations for public toilets, water and lunch space are noted.
The trips are designed to be completely free for students, only requiring travel and staff for supervision. Some locations charge entry fees but the tasks can all be completed outside using details from the buildings, signs etc.
