Mary’s Story

What was life like in Victorian Hackney?

Mary’s story uses a storybook to transport children back in time. Children will explore the jobs of a Victorian maid, and will think about the differences between Hackney then and now by looking at images from Hackney Archives. Throughout the story, children will find hidden objects around the museum to help tell Mary’s story.

Early years foundation stage (EYFS)

“The children really loved going to find all the different things… it was like a treasure hunt!”
