    Our topic in terms 3 and 4 is Victorian Stroud.


    In History, we will be researching what life was like in Victorian Stroud.  We will investigate various aspects of Victorian life in order to compare with life today including, the mills, the arrival of the railway, and what life was like for children at this time. We will try to build a picture of what Stroud looked like in the Victorian era and what it would have been like to live in Stroud during that period of history.
