Life in the past
Home life in the past was very different to home life today. There was less technology and chores were harder. People got up earlier because they had many chores to do. People picked up wood every day for their fires. My grandparents in England had to heat up water over the fire every day because they didn’t have hot water or electricity. My grandfather’s mother always cooked food for the family. She also washed everyone’s clothes and cleaned the house. After school, the children helped to hang up the washing in the garden. My grandfather’s father worked with horses. He worked hard all day and came home at night. The family ate dinner together every night and the children washed up the dishes. They were a happy family but life in the past wasn’t easy.
