LC: To give a broad overview of life in Britain (the rise of the cotton trade in the north)

During this time in British history, industry was 'booming' and Britain was becoming extremely wealthy. Cotton mills were thriving in the north of England with Manchester becoming the first industrial city in the world!


However, there was a problem, but the Victorians were very good at solving problems! All of the raw cotton was arriving in Liverpool, on the coast. How could they distribute this around to the rest of the north of England. Remember, the Victorians didn't have trucks like we do today and transporting it by canal barge was very slow and took an awful long time. 


They needed something better, something quicker - the steam locomotive! Trains!


Please read the following information and watch the videos.

Please watch the videos below in the order they appear on the page. 
Now read the following information carefully. 

Have a look at the one above, it's the example I created for last year's Year 6 pupils. 


Please use the template on Seesaw to create your poster (Poster for History - Tuesday). I have added some pictures but if you don't want to use some of them, just delete them. You can also add your own pictures from Google by saving them first, then use the camera icon on the left to upload them.


If you want, you can complete your poster on paper, but you must take your time and complete to a high standard. If you decide to do this, send your teacher a photograph of it on Seesaw.
