Year 9 History Students Collaborate with Year 2 Students from Local Primary School
On Monday 28th February, Year 9 History students took part in an event to collaborate with Biggin Hill Primary School children in Year 2.
Our students looked at the story of 1066 and helped lead a 'Big Stories for Little Historians' workshop. The students were amazing, and I was so proud of how they interacted with the younger students. They were a real credit to Charles Darwin School.
A special thank you goes to Mr Archer and the Media Department for their help with filming and photography on the day. Ellis Hollman and Sean Cambridge did a great job at capturing the workshop and Paula Szczyrba will be making a promotional video for the book publishers Tarquin.
Below is some feedback from our students on how they felt about the experience:
" I thought it was extremely fun, and I loved Ms Davies story, it was a brilliant experience to use our knowledge and teach others" - Neve Ladd Talbot.
" I loved the activities from firing arrows to acting out the Battle of Hastings" - Sienna Hobbs.
" We got to hold artefacts that were nearly a 1000 years old" - Georgia Robinson.
" I think we would have been great at Archery in 1066!" - Freddie Sinclair and Jedd Hobbs
