Moving Britain

Key Stage One, Two

Cross Curricular

This workshop enables visiting students to explore the significant changes to the Victorian world brought about by the arrival of the Railway.

As modern visitors pupils remain rooted in their own modern time but with the help of 'The Time Tour Guide' are able to drop in and out of history, allowing them to discover with the benefit of hindsight whether these changes were adventagous, who benefited the most and contrast a historical period with their own.
