Welcome to Jaguar's class page!
This half term our topic is called "Palmerston Street" and is all about Victorian Romsey.
We will be comparing life as a rich Victorian and life in the Workhouse. Our specific focus will be on the life of children both in Romsey and in London, during this era. We will consider whether it would be better to live in a workhouse or out on the streets. In addition, we will look at the census for Romsey to understand more about Victorian life locally. We will also find out key facts about how Dr Barnados started his charity. Finally we will end the topic by answering our over arching question to the topic, “What impact did the Victorians have on Romsey?”
