CHS has launched a new History Club for all Year 8-10 pupils, meeting every Tuesday from 1:15-1:40pm in Mrs Allen’s room. New members are always very welcome.
History Club offers pupils the opportunity to explore a variety of individuals and events from all areas of History. Our Club is very much pupil driven, in that it is the pupils who decide what we focus upon. For example, we have recently been researching the American Civil War after a number of pupils expressed an interest in it. We also enjoy gaining an insight into significant dates as they occur, such as the Holocaust Memorial Day, the Centenary Commemorations for World War One and the 50th anniversary of Winston Churchill’s death.
History Club members engage in a range of activities which include quizzes, projects, movies, re-enactments and getting creative in the reconstruction of medieval weapons!
