Hi Year 5,
This half term we have been learning about the Victorians in topic. We would like you to use your inference skills to interpret some pictures of Queen Victoria. Some of you will also need to complete a researching task as part of your reading challenge. ALL RESEARCH MUST BE WRITTEN IN YOUR OWN WORDS! Answer the questions in full and present your information in full sentences.
A starting point for your research: http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/primaryhistory/famouspeople/victoria/
Firstly, look at these pictures of Queen Victoria:
BRONZE: What can you tell me about Queen Victoria from looking at these images? Look for some other images of her on the internet. What else can you work out about her? What was she like as a Queen?
SILVER: Are these primary or secondary sources of information? What do they tell you about Queen Victoria? Do some additional research into Queen Victoria. What kind of Queen was she? Does this support or disprove what you originally thought from looking at the pictures?
GOLD: Are these pictures primary or secondary sources of information? Does this make them more or less reliable? Why? What kind of Queen was she? Find some more information on Queen Victoria. Does this support or disprove what you originally thought from looking at the pictures? In what way?
