English / West Wittering School

This building, originally a cart shed built in the 18th century, was converted to a school in the early 19th century. The interior of West
Wittering School has original artefacts and is furnished to encourage role play and period drama. The school is often used for our Victorian Schoolroom sessions.

Suggested Topics

A ‘hot-seating’ activity could take place whereby a pupil becomes the Victorian school teacher and the rest of the class interview her about her job, her attitude towards the children, her view of learning and what she enjoys about teaching at the school.  ‘Hot-seating’ is an excellent Speaking and Listening activity and could help with the writing of a character sketch of the Victorian teacher.
