This term, Key Stage 3 pupils worked in teams to put together a display in the library taking medieval castles and Queen Elizabeth 1 as their focus.
Year 7 pupils researched castles within and without, real and imaginary, exploring the theme through cartoons, models and posters.One pupil even made a castle out of cake!
Meanwhile Year 8 considered Queen Elizabeth 1, the Spanish Armada, her school and family life. Pupils had enormous fun dressing up and filming Elizabethan make-up tutorials, also on display in the library.
We wonder what the History department will do next? Watch this space...
