Victorian Work



 

Work in the Victorian era was very different to what we call ‘work’ in this day and age. The boys and girls in Primary 6 enjoyed learning all about the different jobs that existed, who was allowed to work, and the ages at which you could begin work. In groups, the children thoroughly researched one type of job/place of work. With all of their new information, they created an information poster and presented it to the class to share their newly acquired knowledge. The children were shocked by the working conditions, and were glad to note that changes were soon made.
