Charlie, there is a new book out called "Elizabeth's London" that will have the information you are looking for. The entire book is about the lives of ordinary people in 16th Century and there is a chapter on education and raising children. I am sorry to say I was in a hurry to return my copy to the library and did not read that chapter. Your public library probably also has a copy of the book. Good luck!
Only the boys go to school
yes but only the rich boys. the poor kids wud definantly not have gone to school!!
Yes, and school started at about 6 in the morning, then lasted till about 5! how awful!
Hey Charlie! I have to do the same project and what you can do to take up space is wirte about rich children and compare their lives to the lives of the poor. Thats what i did and i got a 1A! Also go down to your local library, they could have some books on it. :)
Hey charley,did you know that poor children had to work in the fields at the age of four! glad im not der
charleypoor didn't go to school
charlie rich chidren would go to school because they could afford it and the poor children had to go and work usually they would go and clean the peoples chimney for a couple of grotes (pennies) and then give their money away to theire parents to get food but that is a whole different subject
Not many children went to school in Tudor times. Those that did go were mainly the sons of wealthy or working families who could afford to pay the attendance fee. Boys began school at the age of 4 and moved to grammar school when they were 7. Girls were either kept at home by their parents to help with housework or sent out to work to bring money in for the family.Boys were educated for work and the girls for marriage and running a household. The wealthiest families hired a tutor to teach the boys at home.
