Life for children in Victorian times was very different to yours in 2020. What was life like for Victorian children?
Read the document below that tells you all about it. You can also click to hear me read it to you.

Now open your exercise book at the English end.
Make sure you have a double page.
Using a ruler and something to draw around, draw a Double Bubble Map.

Label it like this:

Now complete the Double Bubble Map with things that only Children in 2020 have or experience on the left; things that only Victorian Children had or experienced on the right and things that children then and now have in common in their lives in the centre 3 bubbles.

You could add illustrations too.
