A Glance into History

This term, across Key Stage 3, students have taken an interactive approach in studying the impact of significant events in British history. Year 7’s have been studying the Battle of Hastings by examining the famous Bayeux Tapestry and identifying the key scenes affecting the outcome of the battle.

Year 8’s have been completing a project on the English Civil War, where they have been creating board games with the aim to teach others about the key people and events leading up to the war. Finally, year 9 students have been creating ‘trench guides’, leading them to discover the daily routine and struggles of an ordinary British soldier. Students have enjoyed researching these events and producing material to show off their learning.
