Victorian Ladywood

Today Mr Bartlam came into school to talk Year 5 about the Victorians. We talked through all that we had already found out about that period of history but then we focused on our local area. We found outs lots about Ladywood during the Victorian times. We even went on a field trip around our local area.


First Mr Bartlam showed us lots of pictures and sources from the Victorian times and then we had to retell him all we learnt by creating a short role-play. Mathiwos and Ryan were the narrators and they were fantastic!! They showed the whole class that they listened very carefully when Mr Bartlam was talking and they spoke very eloquently. Watch the videos and decide for yourself.

In the afternoon we went on a walk around Ladywood. We used an aerial photograph of Ladywood like a map to locate the different places that we had discussed in the morning. It wasn’t as easy as you might think! Even Mr Bartlam got confused at one point. We identified several Victorian buildings by the red bricks that were used to make it.
