1940’s School Lessons

The 1940’s School Lessons take place in the Old Schoolhouse in the centre of the village at various times each day.

The Three R’s and Wartime themed lessons will be delivered to classes of 25 maximum. Limited to under 14 year olds, watch out for the Headmistresses wooden ruler which could dish out stinging raps on the knuckles for pupils misbehaving and woe-betide any who give her any back-chat!

Fun and educational in equal measure, this event is heavily oversubscribed, but with only 25 pupils per class get there early to ensure a seat at the desk.
