Africa and The Victorians

Suzie Hunt By Suzie Hunt

Hamilton's cross-curricular topics about Africa and the Victorians are being updated.

Hamilton's Africa and Victorians upper key-stage 2 cross-curricular topics have always been popular, packed as they are with engaging content and creative teaching activities. However, we need to update these topics to meet the objectives of the new National Curriculum for England and have taken them offline while we work on them.

In the meantime, you can find an extensive range of cross-curricular topics for UKS2 for the upcoming months.


In our Africa topic, children's rights and the millennium development goals are studied in relation to Africa and the UK. Health, water, food and trade, Nelson Mandela, African art, history and geography are all covered. We also provide support to link with an African school to help you gain your International School Award.

The Victorians

Our Victorians topic facilitates the study of Queen Victoria - her life, family, portraits and homes. In addition, you can learn about major inventions of the period as well as other aspects of the daily lives of Victoria’s subjects. Workhouses and child labour are studied through fiction. Census data, maps, buildings and the advent of railways provide the basis for developing an understanding of local history.
