Writing creatively about young Victoria
Key Stage 3 | Subject: English and History | Topics: Victorians | Session Type: Route-based and classroom
It is 1837, and 18-year-old Princess Victoria has just been awoken in her bedchamber at Kensington Palace with the news that she is Queen!
Students will explore the new Queen’s childhood home and investigate written sources, including extracts from contemporary Dickens novels, to find out about Princess Victoria’s life at Kensington Palace in the context of Victorian London. Using Victoria’s own letters and diaries as inspiration, students will produce their own poetry to express their creative responses to the new Queen’s Kensington Palace story.
