Victorian Coaster Making Factory

The boys have been split from the girls to begin their night of hard labour. This has started with sanding wood to make coasters that will be sold by the factories for a considerable profit. If the boys work hard then with luck they will receive a piece of stale bread and some mouldy cheese before bedtime. If not, they’ll be lucky to get a cup of dirty water!

What was it like working hard?

How would it have felt doing this for 10 hours a day?

What condition do you think your hand would be in after 10 hours of sanding?

Would it be fair to send Shazil to bed without and food?

How long do you think it would take until you were bored of sanding?

  1. 1) It was hard working like a Victorian child. We are no match to Victorian children. The work there must of been very hard for the children.

    2) It would probably take me a 100 hours to do what the boys did 10 hours a day.Maybe boys are only good at making the coasters edges smooth.

    3) If I had to do that everyday I am sure that my hands would go red than blood and hotter than fire.

  2. I think that the boys actually tried hard,they had to SAND PAPER!
    It would’ve been awesome if the boys did the girls jobs and vice versa maybe they would’ve realized wat the girls are doing and the same to the girls

  3. Madam redhead made us paint some coasters and we were her slaves in the industry. We had to create 40 of our own designs, on the dull plain smooth coasters.we were exhausted after the night in the strict, industry .the industry was all right apart from the coasters .the coasters were dull before the designs were created.

  4. Yes the boys had to work really hard to make these and the girls did the easiest thing painting them. It would be torcher because we don’t get time to rest. Yes because it’s his punishment for being the best cheerleader and the funniest guy. I think it would take for the boys 24 hours to sand it because their slow.

  5. We had to put the wood against the paper and move the paper up down,ther was forty to be done. All forty had to be done;the sides had to be the same.The sides had to be straight.

    It was very hard because we had to move it up and down !

    I think it will take a hour because not much sand is coming.The sides hade to be smooth we hade to forty coasters. We’ve done all of them.
