Verbena Daphne Brighton in Gissing Village, Norfolk - in the beginning of the 1920's

from Nuts in May: memories of care-free days, page 18:

After the retirement and departure of the school master and his wife, came two delightful women teachers, both were of Norfolk origin so they had no difficulty in understanding our most peculiar language. The youngest teacher [...] was in charge of the little ones in the little room […]  [where] with endless patience we were taught how to count, read, write, draw and sing with the harmonium for accompaniment.
