By Charlotte Bronte
Helen Burns
At Lowood
I went to Thornfield Hall to teach my new student Adele.
It was there, that I fell in love with my master, Mr Rochester
We first met when I was in the woods when I helped him with his injured ankle
He was "my type", only he was too proud for me
Thornfield Hall

Jane was locked in the red-room as punishment for hitting John Reed (although it was quite the opposite).
It was in this room that her Uncle Reed had died and it had been abandoned ever since.
Once shut in, Jane would remain locked in for hours.
Whilst there, Jane entered a state of almost-hysteria, eventually passing out because she couldn't handle it.
The unfairness of Mrs Reed, her aunt.
The red room - the trauma.

My long lost cousins

Tired and hungry, I arrived at the front door of Moor House.
The inhabitants were Mary, Diana and St John Rivers
It was a few months, before I discovered I was related to them. I now had a family.
Ferndean Paradise
A lesson learnt
Obstacles That Never Tripped Her
The red room
My worry corner
As a child, I was often locked in this torture room
I would be left alone in this dark room, frightened
During my life, it has often become a symbol of my sufferings, recalling it when I am worried
A bird released

I forced myself to leave although my heart wanted otherwise.
I yearned to be free
What We Learnt
A Lesson to Remember
The growth of character-
she encountered many challenges and was able to overcome them
not only affected by environment, but by the people around us (society) and ourselves
remember to slow down and think things through!
Social class-
looked upon and judged on by social class
what is expected by the people of each class
restricted actions and privileges depending on class
Jane as an Adult
Say Cheese!
Who Is She?
The summary Of Her Life
Jane was an orphan, brought up by her aunt, Mrs Reed
After her tenth birthday, she was sent to Lowood Institute and befriends a girl called Helen Burns.
Later, Jane becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets her first lover, Mr Edward Rochester.
Jane finds her way to the Moor House after running away from Thornfield Manor. It was there that she unintentionally found her three cousins.
Jane eventually returned to marry Mr Rochester and they lived happily ever after.

Main Challenges
The Top Three
The red-room
It was a traumatic experience for Jane.
Often referred to later on in the novel when Jane once again comes across some sort of suffering.
The room symbolises Jane’s feeling of entrapment in her early life. The red colours of the room represent her anger, resentment, sadness and loneliness.
Leaving Thornfield
Jane reluctantly leaves Thornfield Manor.
It is probably one of the most significant choices she makes in the novel.
Jane doesn't want to be Mr Rochester’s mistress - it would mean sacrificing her autonomy.
In this situation, Jane chooses reason and independence over love.
St John's Proposal
Main Challenges
The Top Three
The Top Three
Main Challenges
Jane declines the offer.
Though it would not be a bad thing to marry him, Jane does not love St John. She merely respects him.
Jane does not see any sense in a loveless marriage and, eventually, she returns to Mr Rochester.
With courage and determination, anything is possible. You are responsible for your own ending.
