A Very Victorian View

Having finished off our Samuel Pepys and Great Fire of London information posters in ICT today, some of us had time to begin to explore a Victorian house using an animation hosted on the Geffrye Museum website. Our new topic is Queen Victoria and the Victorians and the simulation has given us a little bit of an insight into a Victorian home and what can be found inside – just in time for our visit to Wisbech Castle next week. We’re all very excited about the trip and are busy planning our outfits as we will dress up as boot boys and scullery maids for the day.
If you’d like to try the Victorian house walk through for yourself, follow the link below. Unfortunately the simulation does use Flash Player so it won’t run on an iPad but it’s worth booting up the laptop or desktop for!
