Kids can’t help but know about native residential schools now, so here are some books that might help explain the system and the long-lasting, generational, effects of it in ways they can understand. 4-7s The Orange Shirt by Phyllis Webstad Stolen Words by Melanie Florence When We Were Alone by David A Robertson 7-9s I […]


I spent my childhood living back and forth between England (Berkshire / Oxfordshire) and Canada (Ontario / British Columbia). In Ontario, my parents sometimes took two First Nation children at a local residential school on outings and special occasions like Christmas, since they were not always allowed to go home. They were sisters, Rebina, aged […]


Since schools in many countries have either already re-opened, or are about to do so, here are some interesting sites to visit. If your kids are among those starting/returning to school (presumably with stringent restrictions and precautions in place), please take care. For those whose kids aren’t going back just yet, I will go on […]

When a friend and I were reminiscing about being child devotees of books like Enid Blyton Mallory Towers, Naughtiest Girl, & St. Clare’s series, and Anthony Buckeridge’s Jennings series we both admitted to thinking that life at boarding schools sounded like great fun and had wanted to go to one ourselves. “That’s because you bloody […]


It was five years ago today that the first Time Travelling With Kids blog post appeared. I started it, partly, in order to entertain and/or enlighten adults and kids who are already history aficionados, but mostly to help parents and teachers spark an interest in kids who aren’t. So, Happy 5th Birthday, blog. And Happy […]


September’s history based or bygone era TV and/or movie suggestions are ‘Back To School’ related and should make kids either glad or sorry that they don’t go these ones. Goodbye Mr. Chips (1939) The Great St. Trinian’s Train Robbery * (1966) (Mid-20th Century) Jane Eyre (1943)  & the TV Mini-Series (1983) (Victorian Era) Tom Brown’s […]


For two hundred years, children starting their first year of school in Germany have been presented with a Schültute, a paper cone filled with toys, school supplies, and treats. It began in 1817, when a church cantor presented one to a little girl called Jena, and the idea caught on. The cones have not always […]


Once education of the young began to be regarded as a necessity, a place in which to provide it also became a necessity. In North America, the first schools in rural areas were usually one-room buildings in which a solitary teacher taught children of all age levels. In small communities, the teacher might have only […]


In The Mud Rose, my young time travellers connect to their Victorian mudlarks through a visit to London’s Ragged School Museum. This museum was once the Barnardo-run Copperfield Ragged School, the largest of the schools supplying free education to the children of the poor. Now, however, it supplies not-so poor modern children with information on […]
