Year 6 2020 - 2021

Mrs Babinska

This term we will be learning about Manchester and the Industrial Revolution. We will be looking at investigating various sources and finding answers to our 5 enquiry questions: 

  • Why did people move to towns and cities in XIX century?
  • What were the problem children faced when working in factories?
  • ‘Mills and Factories were the only basis for the Industrial Revolution in Manchester’. To what extent do you agree with this statement?
  • What were the effect of the coming of the railways on different groups in society?
  • What evidence of the Industrial Revolution still remains here in Manchester today?

Some of our lessons  will focus on houses in a street called Thomas Street, in an area now known as the Northern Quarter of Manchester, about half a mile from Piccadilly Railway Station. After completing the lessonS, we will then try to answer the over-arching enquiry question: 'Mills and Factories were the only basis for the Industrial Revolution in Manchester’. To what extent do you agree with this statement?

At the end of our topic we will have a debate...

IS PROGRESS ALWAYS GOOD?
