Civil War

In history, Senior 2 have spent the autumn term on a focused study of the English Civil War. Knowledge and understanding of this turbulent period of English history was further enriched when Mr and Mrs Richardson shared their expertise as Civil War re-enactors and set up camp on our school field for a morning. Children and staff really enjoyed the experience and learnt much from the large collection of original artefacts that were on display and the wealth of knowledge that was shared with them. Highlights from the morning included the firing of a seventeenth century musket and the sampling of almond biscuits baked to a contemporary Civil War recipe.
