This thought-provoking lesson looks at the lives of poor children in Victorian Britain and looks at what they had to do in order to avoid the dreaded workhouse. Starting with an extract from ‘Oliver Twist’, your class will then find out why children didn’t have to go to school, and how and why poor children were put to work as soon as they were able. They will also find out about some of the different jobs that children had to do and some of the associated dangers.
