The Victorian School Room Experience

Children and adults alike can enjoy a unique  schoolroom experience as they step back in time and enjoy an educational school room re-enactment.

You can shiver at the discipline, write on slates, read from the blackboard, count on the abacus, and practice your drill, as well as play traditional games.

A session in the school room can be paired with related extension activities such as ;

“Visualising Life in Victorian England”,

“Developing  Victorain  Time Line” or  learn how to use “Old Photographs as Evidence”.

The extension activities can be customised to the requirements of particular year groups and in keeping with your locality.

Authentic costumes are provided for boys and girls.
