On Tuesday, all the junior school pupils and staff went on their History Expedition Day. ✨
Form One visited the Royal Albert Memorial Museum to learn about Ancient Egypt, and the museum included a variety of engaging activities for pupils, including mummification and handling ancient ...objects.
Upper One returned to Tiverton Museum to study the Anglo-Saxons, specifically their impact on Devon. They enjoyed exploring the museum, completing different activities and many pupils (and staff too!) enjoyed having their photo taken in a warrior’s helmet!
Lower Two again returned this year to Buckland Abbey. This was to explore the dissolution of the monasteries and discover the home of Sir Francis Drake. When they arrived, they were greeted with a surprise: the full abbey had been decorated for the best time of year, bringing tonnes of Christmas spirit to the classes. 🎄
Upper Two returned to Coldharbour Mill for a drama experience of what it was like to work in a Victorian mill. This year, they also learnt about the history of weaving and were able to give it a go themselves, creating some wonderful mementos of the day.
They all had a wonderful time, learning lots and promoting engaging, relevant and interesting history across the school. 🥳🌲
