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!

I used to be a Play Coordinator for the 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 and ukulele in schools where I try out all the songs in the club so you know they will go down a storm with your kids!"
