This Victorian inventors KS2 resource pack, made in partnership with the V&A, uses the inventions of the past to inspire inventors of the future…
The aim of this Little Inventors workshop is to inspire children to use their imagination to help them to think up and draw original, ingenious, funny, fantastical or perfectly practical invention ideas, with no limits.
This workshop offers a fun way to learn about Victorian inventors. Children will explore the design and purpose of real inventions from the Victoria and Albert Museum collection, and get to become Victorian Little Inventors themselves.
This guide suggests how you might want to use the Little Inventors resources to run a structured workshop. However you could also pick and choose from the activities to customise the pack, depending on the age and abilities of children and the time you have available.
Differentiation and extension activities are also provided to enable all children to make the most of the workshop.
