Key stage 2 | Subject: History, English| Topic: Victorians | Session Type: Route-based and classroom-based
It is 24 May 1819. In the early hours of the morning, a baby girl – Victoria - is born in a makeshift maternity room in Kensington Palace. Unlikely as it seemed at the time, she will become Queen.
How did Victoria – fifth in line to the throne at birth - come to be queen? Who was this little girl? How was she educated for the role?
Children will explore Queen Victoria’s life in the palace in which she grew up. They will study evidence from journals, paintings and objects to consider how she was trained for the position, and will reflect on how well prepared the royal court and society at large were for the first female monarch to rule in her own right in over a century.
