Welcome to a special episode of Time Travel TV for Christmas!
In today’s episode, you’ll learn about how Victorians celebrated at this time of year, whether they were rich or poor!
We have made some changes to the format of Time Travel TV – the whole episode is now in one video so that it is much simpler to follow!
Watch the video and complete the document tasks! You can find all the images of documents on this page too, should you want to print them out for the activities!
You have 20 seconds to take a first look at the mystery document.
It isn’t a very long time! So think about the appearance of the document, what is the layout?
Additional documents to investigate
These documents are adverts from the Victorian and Edwardian periods.
What are the similarities and differences in how these two documents portray Christmas?
How do they compare to the Workhouse document?
Who do you think these documents are designed for?
Browse the rest of our
Christmas activities such as Craft Club, Tots storytelling and more document activities too!
Using the adverts as inspiration, design your own adverts for things you like to do at Christmas to persuade others to do the same. For example, this may be giving presents to friends and family, or baking a Christmas cake!
