Portrait Photos

What can we learn from Victorian portrait photography?

Learn about what the lives of people were like in the Victorian era and understand why photography is so special to St Andrews through a class discussion on Thomas Rodger and his portraits, as well as a carousel mind map activity.

Creative Writing

Victorian Portrait Photography: Creative Writing Task

Combine learning from previous activities by writing a diary entry pretending to be a member of the Heddle family (in around 1880) who are from St Andrews and have just had their portrait taken.
