Children will be taught about what life was like in Britain for children at different times in history as part of their KS2 history studies.. This is the second of two quizzes on this topic and it looks specifically at everyday life for Victorian children in the 1800s.
Everyday life for Victorian children was much different than it is today. Being young in the 1800s was very tough, especially for those who were poor. Many early Victorian children had to work and did not go to school. In 1840 only around 20 percent of the children in London had any schooling at all. Later in the 1800s the amount of work children could do was restricted and eventually all children were sent to school.
Take this quiz and find out what you know about everyday life for children living in the Victorian era.
