Otters visit the British Schools Museum

The Otter Class visited the British Schools Museum, an educational museum based in original Edwardian and Victorian school buildings in Hitchin. The museum complex is made up of Grade II listed school buildings housing infants, girls and boys schools with houses for Master and Mistress. It includes a monitorial schoolroom based on the educational theories of Joseph Lancaster for 300 boys, which opened in 1837, and a rare galleried classroom, dating from 1853.
The children had a fantastic time learning how their forebears were taught
