49 thoughts on “Life as a Tudor child

  1. William Shakespeare’s lifestyle was different to modern days because children in the past dressed differently to us. Schools were very harsh in Tudor period. If a child did a mistake, then the teacher had to hit the child with a long and thick stick. Schools have changed past these years because in the past, children went and learned in the church. Whereas, we come and learn in a school. Usually in the past, girls wouldn’t go to school. Instead they would stay at home and learn how to work like a mother. The girls would probably learn how to sew,cook and wash. On the other hand, boys would go to school and study how to work in a factory. When the girls are young enough, they would be know as the servants. The games that were played in the past, were very different to are games because now we play lots of games such as, football, hockey, cricket and lots of other games. However, in the Tudor period, people usually played polo and played on the swing. Our lifestyle have chnaged throughout time because people’s knowledge have been improved and we have better materials to make these buildings.

  2. If an innocent child made a mistake thy would get beaten and boys use to wear a kind of cloth that looked like a dress .Also William was at school for a long time because he was studying new things. Children use to use chalk to write with. They have changed because rich were allowed to only go school but now any chid can go to school. lifestyles have changed now because people want children to be happy and have friends no more illness and diseases.

  3. william shakespear were writeplayer.
    william shakewspear had diferrent food,homme and clothes.
    in Tudor time lifestyle were diffrent of are because in Tudor times they home were made of wood but are from bricks.i think life has change because that was history.

  4. Life as a Tudor child was hard and very different to modem childhood.
    The school were horrible because the child were whacked with sticks if the did poor work or be naughty. Girls learn form home if the family could pay for tuition.
    If the family was poo then children didn’t get the opportunity to learn at all. The girl used to have to cook and clean the house with the mother and the did nothing.

    Today all children must be given the opportunity to learn by law. they are not harmed of hurt at school.
    they are car for and respected.
    Also boys don’t were dresses today.

  5. I would never like to live life like a Tudor because they wouldn’t have all the resources that we need.there was a change in history because probably in there times they never had electricity but in our days we do.it has changed because we need to survive.

  7. In Tudor times, William Shakespeare went grammar school, meaning they teached him Latin,French,Bible reading and many more.The pupils were all sons of rich people, as they had to pay for their education.However, daughters of the rich were educated at home, this meant a tutor taught them some basics studies,but their main schooling was to learn how to run a household from their mother.Some poor children learned to read and write,then stopped when they were old enough to work.Rich girls and boys wore ruffs around their neck and long dresses until they were 4 years old.

  8. William Shakespeare has a hard life because he wrote poems songs and story’s. He works really hard at school because when you are dirty tutors beat you when you come to school.Tudor schools start at 7pm or 6pm.When school changes its different because when you make a little mistake the tutors will beat you. Childrens lives were different as the boys went to school to learn subjects however the girls did not go to school because they spent there time at home to learn to cook and sew.

  9. If he was rich as a kid then he would wear doublet,breeches and stockings however if he was poor as a kid he would wear warm and lraticsl,made as linen or wool,not the height of fashion.Indeed because in Tudor periods if you was poor you would need to pay for school but if you was rich you would not need to pay + you’ll get your own school built.(one class for drama,one class for grammar)that’s how their school work.Also the teachers at the start of Tudor ages were monks and priests! Some,poor children learned to read and write ,but stopped when they were old enough to work.

  10. In Tudor times, schools were only accepting boys , girls were taught by they mothers at home . If you made a mistake at the grammar schools you were sure to be beaten! Another horrible rule is: all students must attend school at 7am and finish at 5pm! However, today schools accept both boys and girls due to women’s rights. Today schools last 9am to 3:15pm because we aren’t taught Latin.

  11. There life was different because the boys had to go to grama school however the girls learn at home with their mums.The schools were different to our schools because they had to get a smack with a stick if they are not obediant.This could happen oftenly if they do not have correct posture and if they be naughty.Shools have changed by in Tudor times there schools starts at 7am and ends at 5pm.When it is Christmas and Easter they have a holiday because there religion is Christian.In Tudor times they learn Latin,Piano,Archery,Swimming,French and Bible reading however we learn a variety of subjects such as Numeracy,English,
    Topic,Religious education and personal social health education.Lifestyles have changed by clothing like having better material.Also for houses beca use we have brick and they have wattle and daub.We have slates for for roofs and that helps us so any water does not pass through the slates.

  12. Poor people in the the Tudor times,had to go to a horrible school.On the other hand,rich people had a great school life in a massive school.
    Schools in Tudor times were harsh because they gave terrible punishment like getting your trapped.Also, they have high expectations for the pupils otherwise you will probably get kicked out of the school.
    In the Tudor times,schools lasted for a long time and sometimes they will give vile punishments.However, in the modern the school time lasts a few hours.
    In the Tudor time,children’s lives were horrible because if they do one mistake then you will get punished badly.

  13. There life was different because they had different clothes and they where where very poor and had ragged clothes.At the start of the Tudor age,school where closed by king Henry the eighth had them closed for a bit.Rich men built more.

  14. He wore different clothes and had a different house. Poor people would go to a horrible and dirty school however if they went to a beautiful school they would have to pay to go. Rich people would have gone to a massive, fancy school they would not go to a school which is not fancy and lovely. They used to play lots of games such as archery and fishing both rich and poor did this on the other hand only rich people took part in fishing. School have changed now because they do give punishments but not as harsh as Tudors. Sometimes youths played a very rough version of football. The teachers were monks and priests however now teachers are people who are well educated to teach. At the start of Tudor age, schools were in monasteries but they were closed by Henry VIII during the reformation in 1540.

  15. If you were rich and a kid you would wear dresses. Girls wore jewels in their locks and the fabrics were velvet or silk and very expensive. Poorer boys wore woolen or cotton clothes as they were a lot cheaper. Shakespeare would have worn rich clothes because he was from a wealthy timeline.
    Games have also changed because technology has advanced. Now we play on computers, tablets and phones but in thenTudor era they played archery and went fishing. They also played football but it was a very rough game so Henry VIII banned it. Shakespeare probably enjoyed writing in his spare time too.
    In Tudor times schools were very expensive,schools were in monasteries.the teachers monks and priests,but the monasteries were banned by Henry VIII during the reformation in 1540.

  28. If a child did one mistake they would get beaten by the teacher.Also when he was young Shakespeare use to go to grammar school and girls were tought at home because they want to learn how to cook and dress like a woman.However, in Tudor times children would of got beaten if they slouch and answer back.schools have changed because we have white boards and they have chalk to write with and there schools are smaller than the schools now a days.The children’s lives have changed because they had to wear long dresses which boys had to wear in Tudor times now boys do not wear dresses.

  29. In the Tudor times boys were treated better than the girls so boys were allowed to go to school.

    School have changed over time , modern day schools don’t have such strict rules.
    Children’s lives have changed by having more education as well as fun,whereas, in the Tudor times,children didn’t have much fun and education.
    lifestyles have changed , more education , simple school times,and a more easy lifestyle.

  30. William Shakespeares life was different because as a child if he went to a school and if he would do something wrong he would be beaten by their teachers.The school was very weird because when the reign started the schools were in monastries (church) but in 1500 Henry the 8 closed down the schools and then rich people would build grammar schools for BOYS and girls mother would of teach HER at HOME to learn how to be a girl and be respectful.In Tudor times girls and women would wear ruffs around their neck and long fluffy dresses but boys wore long dresses until 4 years old.Childrens life changed because Elizabeth 1 came on the throne and the time was called golden age

  33. Children in the Tudor period there schools were located in a church which meant that all the children were all Christians. In there schools the time they started was 7am-5pm however in modern times the time to go to school has changed the time to go to school is 9:00-15:15.

  34. Life is different because there are less grammar schools beacuse there are only 10 to 15 children in grammar schools per class.Schools were terrifying because if you misbehaved you will get whacked and will forced to wear a tight belt who he’d hurted you and it was called a monastairy.Scools have changed beacuse modern teachers don’t have a cane and its not called a monastery.Childrens have changed by children were more modern clothes than wearing more posh clothes.they have changed by there are less poor people in the world and less rich people.

  35. 1. In there times they don’t have electricity. And they don’t have no TVs so they can’t watch movies.2 The schools in Tudor times we’re boring because they don’t have electric stuff.

  36. His life was different because he didn’t have electricity
    In Tudor schools they started school when they were 4 and leave when they are 7
    Our schools we come school when we are 3 or 4 and leave after year 6
    Children’s lives changed because we have good schools and Tudor schools have bad schools

  37. Williamshaksphere had a feather to write whith however we have a pencil to write whith.also the schools are different because are school has more equipment however again they have got less equipment.they used to give children detention and in are school they don’t.are school is better.

  38. 1.His lifetime has changed because he was in the Tudor times and we are in England and we did not have electricity.

    2.not many children went to Tudor schoolsthat was because ther family’s were poor

    3.It was a very different place and the rules were very different.

  39. William Shakespeare life was different as a kid because he had different kind of school in the Tudor era as well as they wore different clothes when they were children.
    The schools were different because they did not have electricity in the class and they had chalk boreds to write on and no books just chalk boreds. They did not have many displays in there classroom.
    Both of the classrooms have changed by more displays and in the past there were little displays. Nowdays we have electronics in the class room but in the past they had chalk boards.
    The children’s life have changed by different clothes the children wear and the games that the children play. The life style changed because some people invent the things that we really need.

  40. He didn’t have things like us his school in Tudor times was plain boring.They have improved by teaching him something like to be a writer.For Shakespeare it was difficult but now he has all that knowledge teacher that has supported him and encouraged him.Life styles have changed because we need stationary resources and devices electricity to help us and we need other things for us to survive.

  41. In the food that they eat and they never had shops.
    Different because they never had resources like I pads.
    By the different resources.
    By having better home.
    So it can be better.

  42. they had different clothes to were and they compared to us.And there schools were different to us because we have electronics however they never had electronics.
    In the past the schools had chalk boards to write on they had no electronics and they had wooden desks,on the other hand we have books to write in and we have electronics and we also have metal and colourful wood for our desks.
    Children’s lifes have changed because before they had to climb up the chimney to unblock it but in modern days we call some one to unblock it.
    Life style has changed because lady’s had to wear skirts all of the time but now they can were any think.boys use to wear shorts but now they can were jeans and shorts to.

  43. Because we got lots of electricity and good stationary and William Shakespeare used ink and a feather pen. Schools were very strict in the Tudor times .The teachers used to hit them with a wooden stick. That’s how strict they were!

  44. William ate different food and had a different home. They learnt different things. Schools have changed now we learn maths, science and others but in Tudor times they learnt others. The children’s life have changed because there homes were made from wood but our homes are made from brick’s. I think life has changed because that was hisory
