Healthy Eating and the Workhouse
These pages look at the role of food and diet in the Victorian workhouse through original workhouse records. They explore History, PSHCE, Science, Literacy and Numeracy at Key Stage 2.
These pages are intended for teachers and provide copies of original documents alongside ideas for use in the classroom.
This resource has been developed by teachers using collections from the North Yorkshire County Record Office as part of the MLA Yorkshire funded 'Soup for the Soup Kitchen' project.
