About the Resource

A one off lesson (60 mins) exploring Victorian match factory workers and their terrible working conditions.  This lesson and plan received an 'Outstanding’ by Ofsted. The lesson plan can easily be adapted and comes complete with a full Ofsted friendly lesson plan, teacher guidelines, homework and resource sheet and powerpoint.  There are links to research / background materials for extension work. It can easily be linked to modern-day child labour / exploitation. It is suitable for both experienced drama teachers and non-specialist teachers.  The lesson has also been used in primary schools to great success, and could be used for an induction lesson or for primary taster visits.  What better way to combine drama, history and PSHE? A great way to keep SMT - and students - happy.

Lesson plan, teacher's notes and background PowerPoint including research links.
