1940s English School

It's a slow news day and there haven't been any film clips on this site for a while, so take a look at the below. It's a 1940s video showing school life - the clip says 'Primary School' but surely the children involved are younger? There's a lot of charm in watching films like this, though modern viewers may take issue with some of the gender stereotypes which the narrator uses!

This film has been shared on YouTube by KinoLibrary. You can view similar clips on this site by clicking on 'Educational Films' in the Hot Topics menu on the right hand side of this page.
