We recently went to the fabulous Little Woodham 1642 village. We have been several times before and this time they opened just for our home education group. L had an inset day, so she came too, so it was a bit like old times when they were both home educated…. Not exactly the same as L is now as tall as me and both of them are happy to disappear off to watch what they want to.
The people at Little Woodham are all amazing, 1642 is their hobby and that is how the whole village is set up .. it gives such a real feel of how a village would have been in those days, and the people have so much in depth knowledge. Who’d have thought there were so many uses for urine!!!
It attracted a large number of home educators, so was a lovely day for catching up with people we hadn’t seen for a while. It is bizarre realising how many people hadn’t met L before, now she’s been in school for three years!! It was good having some of the new teen home edders there who haven’t been to many trips before… getting a taste of the fun side of home education, not just signing up for gcse classes which there are a lot more of in recent years.
We have repeat visited Little Woodham as they often have different people with different skills, depending on when you go.
It is such a gem. Can’t recommend highly enough.
