"Children in Victorian Britain" by Rahela


Hi, what's up?
Now, I want to talk about Children in Victorian Britain.
In that time, the poor children suffer a lot and the rich children has got  no problems. For example , the life of Thomas and Mary. Thomas lived in England in 1859. He lived with his mother, father, and six brothers and sisters. His family was very poor. They lived in one room with no bath. Thomas didn't go to school and he didn't learn to read and write. He worked in a factory for ten hours a day. He was often very tired.
Thomas had very little free time but sometimes he played with his friend. He had old clothes and he was often cold. Mary also lived in England in 1859. Her family was rich and they lived in a big house.
Marry didn't work and she didn't help at home. Servants cleaned the house and cooked the food. She learned to read and write, but not at school. Teacher lived in her house. She played at home with her brothers and sisters their favourite toys were a doll's house, a toy train, and a rocking horse.
And this is a big lesson, for know that you have to appreciate what you have.
