Marc Morris Famous Historian Speaks to Students at Charles Darwin School
On the 26th of April, the famous Historian Marc Morris spoke to students at Charles Darwin School. The acclaimed historian described as “the genius of medieval narrative” delivered a presentation to students studying history at GCSE. With two bestselling books on the Anglo Saxon’s and the presenter of the Channel 4 series Castles the students were given an excellent learning opportunity by such a highly acclaimed historian.
The opportunity for parents to attend the event to share some of the narrative the students learn at GCSE was really valued. The History department made the event even more memorable by hosting a medieval themed afternoon tea before the presentation. The Canteen was transformed into a medieval banquet room. All students who studied history contributed to the wonderful array of decorations and historical themed cakes.
It was so pleasing to see students re-engaging with their curriculum and having these wonderful opportunities after Covid Restrictions.
