Charles Darwin School

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
