"My grandparents first came to Britain from India in 1962 to work in a factory, so I'm third generation British-Indian. I speak Gujarati with my family and enjoy going to huge Indian weddings at the community centre or taking part in Hindu festival celebrations such as Diwali, but I have a lot of friends and interests outside the community, too. I've heard recently that more than a third of people living in my city, Leicester, today are migrants1 or second or third generation migrants. So, it's set to be the first city in the UK where ethnic minority groups will make up the majority!
 Rupa, 16

1people moving from place to place to find work

1  Look at the pie chart. What information does it give us about the ethnic population in Britain?

2  RNE  Read the text. Who (Rupa, Jerome or Li):

1    says their community experiences less racism now?
2    has experienced racism?
3    doesn't speak English at home?
4    says their community has fit in welt in Britain?
5    likes to join in with community events? 

"When people ask me where I'm from, I say I'm British, even though I'm of Chinese origin. I used to live in a small town and I got picked on a bit because I looked different, but now I live in Newham in East London, which is the most culturally diverse place in the United Kingdom. At school, half of the pupils speak English as a second language. Our next door neighbours are from Poland. They came to Britain with their 15 year-old boy just after Poland became part of the E.U."
Li, 17

"My parents are from Jamaica, but they have been living in England since they were young. I was born and brought up in Birmingham, England. When the first Caribbeans were invited to come to Britain for work in the late 1940s, there was quite a lot of racism2, and it was hard for Caribbeans to find well-paid work. Nowadays, the Caribbean community is one of the most integrated in Britain. Racism isn't unheard of, of course, but you only have to see how many mixed-race marriages there are now and how many second and third generation Caribbeans are household names on TV to understand how much things have changed."

Jerome, 18

Victorian Families 

Upper & Middle Class Families

Families were very important to Victorians. They were usually large, with an average family 1).....(have) at least five or six children.

The father, who perhaps worked in banking or insurance, was the head of the household The children would speak 2).....(polite) to him, and call him "Sir". The mother was responsible for 3) ...... (run) the household and would usually spend her time planning dinner parties or visiting her dressmaker or friends. Children saw very little of 4).... (they) parents anaf spent most oft/re day rn the nursery wrtft a nanny1 as Victorians firmly believed that a child should be 'seen and not 5)...........    (hear)'!

Upper and middle class families lived in large, 6).......... (comfort) houses and had servants such as a cook and kitchen maids to prepare the family meals, a butler to answer the door and wait on the family, and housemaids to carry out household chores such as washing clothes, cooking and cleaning.

For entertainment, families 7).........    (visit) new parks and museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum.

3 Listen and read the text again. Compare and contrast the two types of Victorian families. Use whereas, but, both.

> Upper/Middle class families lived in large houses whereas working class families lived in small ones.


Most of these families lived in small houses. Often several families lived in a single room. Houses had no running water and it was not 8)........... (common) for a whole street to share two 9)..........(out) toilets and a water pump.

It was very common for poor families to have as many as nine or ten children, many of hom didn't go to school. Instead, they looked after their 10 .........(young) brothers and sisters or even worked. In Victorian Britain, children as young as three or four years of age, worked up to 16 hours a day in coal mines, in cotton mills and as chimney sweeps. The father of the house often worked in a factory while the mother was responsible for all the household chores.

For entertainment, working class families went to parks, cheap music halls or to gardens which had fairgrounds, sports matches and fireworks displays.

4  THINK! Project: Find a picture of your ^amily. Compare it to the photograph above. How similar/different are they? What do you think each family's lifestyle is like?

There's plenty you can do to make your neighbourhood a cleaner, greener placel

Recycling ... It starts with YOU!


As the saying goes, there is strength in numbers! So how about getting together with your neighbours and starting a community recycling programme? You could set up bottle, paper, plastic, aluminium and clothing recycling banks and take turns to take everything ¦ * to a local recycling point In this way, your community will be helping to save limited raw materials. You will also help preserve landfill space and reduce the greenhouse gases that they produce.


Bin it, don't drop it !

Have you ever considered how time-consuming it is for local councils to remove litter from our streets? Or how much money it wastes that could be better spent on other services? Organise a litter collection day in fa your neighbourhood. Get some bin bags and see who can fill the most! Once a few of you take action, others will quickly join in!


Get growing!

Sick and tired of living in a concrete jungle? Flowers, plants and trees make our communities more welcoming places to Sve in. They also improve air quality by filtering out pollutants and creating places for small animals and insects to live in. So, organise teams and get planting in your neighbourhood today! Ask your local council for permission to \ plant trees and flowers along roadsides. Don't forget, every little bit helps!
