Our History topic for this half term is the Industrial Revolution

This unit builds on children’s learning in geography, where children will be able to apply vocabulary previously taught in this discipline such as towns, cities, urban, rural, and agriculture. During this unit, the children will look at the similarities and differences between the impact that the Industrial Revolution had on the lives of the rich and the poor. This unit will focus on the substantive concepts of society, urbanisation and industrialisation.  Children will study the growth of the textile industry (with local reference to Leicester).
