Autumn1 – A Victorian Childhood

A Victorian Childhood

Have you ever wondered what your life would’ve been like if you had been born 180 years ago? What would your house, clothes or school be like? Which toys/games would be your favourites? Would you have any hobbies or belong to any clubs?

Well, if you had been born 180 years ago you would’ve been a Victorian child. At that time Queen Victoria was the Queen of England and your life would have been very different than it is today. In our first project this year we’ll be learning all about what life would’ve been like for a Victorian child growing up in Bolton and the important changes that happened, especially for children, during Victorian times.

Look at the 2 pictures of Victorian children below.


What differences can you see? How do you think their lives were different?
