Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Growing up in Britain in the 1880s wasn't easy. For a young child in school the going is tough and the punishments are hard. Readers will follow the experiences of Victorian schoolchildren and will learn some top tips on survival at school. Suddenly modern-day school won't seem quite so bad, as readers discover that they really wouldn't want to be a Victorian schoolchild!
