3) Great emphasis was laid (not given?) on the experience of childhood.
4) Mr Gradgrid bases his life on facts disregarding (neglecting, but not "not paying attention to) emotions and imagination.
5) Sissy isn't influenced by school's education (or: by the school educational method?)
6)He is described as an unattractive man, always carrying a rule and a pair of scales.
7) Dickens uses some similes for the description of Coketown (or to describe Coketwon?), like the smoke which looks like snakes in the sky.
