We are thoroughly delighted to be delivering our popular Victorian sessions again, after Covid put a temporary halt on our indoor activities.
Welcoming back children from local schools, the Victorian classroom has sprung back to life! It has been filled with excited but very well behaved students under the watchful eye of the very strict school teacher, Mrs.Sawyer.
Our volunteers who take on the role of Mrs.Sawyer deserve an Oscar for their performances! They immerse themselves fully into their character, wearing their Victorian attire and suitably stern expressions. The children file into our authentic Victorian classroom and feel as if they have stepped back in time to 1869! Learning the 3R's, wearing back-boards if they slouch, writing on slate and so much more, the children experience what life for Victorian school children was like. They leave with a greater appreciation for school life today!
