Victorian Manchester

Pupils will understand how different sections of society interacted and built the foundations of the Manchester we know today. Philanthropist Thomas Horsfall who created The Manchester Art Museum in1884 will be introduced to help the pupils discuss ideas of class, beauty and society. Using role play and drama they empathise with both rich and poor through the exploration of work and city life.
