Class debate on child labour in Victorian times

We had a debate in Year 4 about child labour. It was so interesting! Did you know children worked for as long as 18 hours in those days?! Ridiculous!! Both debating teams had so many strong arguments. It was tough but we all worked together to help each other get lots of strong arguments to prove our point. What a releif to know that during Queen Victoria’s reign, laws were made to protect children to give them a better childhood.
