Poor families MMMMany people were poor in the Victorian times. FFFFamilies had up to six children and lots of babies so they were always very busy. MMMMost children were forced to go and work instead of going to school. SSSSome children would help out on a farm or stay at home and do the house work.
Money Lots of Victorians were broke and were in need of money. The oldest children went to work on a farm, did all the house jobs and became a servants. They earned a sixpence every work day.
Children Lots of Victorian children needed to do jobs like help out on a farm, work as a servant or just stayed at home doing the washing up or sewing up torn clothes. After they did their jobs, they were too tired and too hungry to go and play
Work The wasn’t that much work in the Victorian times but people didn’t have a choice if they had a family to feed. Most girls stayed at home to help with the family but they worked as nannys too. Children needed to work hard but they were as young as six!
Oliver Twist AAAA man called Charles Dickens wrote a book based on a Victorian child called Oliver Twist. IIIIts about an orphan who escapes the Workhouse and runs away to London. TTTThese are pictures of Oliver, begging for more food.
The Workhouse The Workhouse was a place where you came to if you didn’t have any job. It was infected with diseases and was a horrible place.
