VIDEO: Curiosity Shop at Rushden school

Pupils have been receiving a taste of old-fashioned education.

An innovative classroom called The Old Curiosity Shop has been created at South End Junior School, Rushden, to inspire pupils’ writing.

In it, pupils are taught by writing workshop consultant Geoff Dean and are surrounded by the sorts of things their grandparents and great-grandparents may remember from their school days.
