The Victorian Way KS1/2 Topic: Victorians

A song about life as a child in service in a Victorian Manor House

The Victorian Way - Songpack

Here's a perfect song to accompany your Victorian topic! Especially if you dress up as Victorian children for the day, or even go to visit a real manor house.

This song describes the type of jobs and what it was like for children who were in service in a manor house during the period. Life was mostly work with few hours off a day for playtime, and only one whole day off every few weeks or even a month. Up at the crack of dawn and working through til late at night.

This song will bring the topic alive and give children even more insight as to what their life may have been like if they were born in the Victorian era.

Played on the ukulele, this song would be suitable to teach children in year's 4 -6 how to play the part (not a complete beginner's level) or sound great if any of your staff play to accompany.

We will add the full production audio and a short ukulele tutorial video very soon!

Hello, I'm Al! I started Go Kid Music in 2015 because I believe we need more great age-appropriate songs for children and their families. I used to be a Play Coordinator for local authority, lecture at Brighton University and have trained in play, creative learning and child development. I studied music at Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2003 and gained a distinction in Songwriting & Modern Composition. I have toured extensively and produce music and events for families. I teach singing in schools. We've made a short film to show you what we do at Go Kid Music and why children love it so much - watch it HERE! I hope you enjoy singing and listening to these songs, get in touch and let me know!"
