GCSE History brought to life

Recently our GCSE History pupils took a two day visit to London where they went on a walking tour around the City of London. They visited St Paul’s Cathedral, Newgate prison and the monument to William Wallace (Braveheart).

This was followed by some time in the Old Operating Theatre Museum learning about how operations were performed without anaesthetic; the pupils looked around some of the artefacts on display and then they rounded off the day with a river cruise on the Thames going down to Greenwich and back up to Westminster.

On the second day the pupils took part in a workshop in the Jewish Museum in Camden on the topic of learning lessons from the Holocaust. There was a moving video account given by a holocaust survivor on his experiences of the Second World War, then the students took a look at the collection of artefacts housed in the museum that told the story of Jewish customs and way of living.

In the afternoon, students visited the London Dungeons which did a good job of instilling knowledge and fear in equal measure!

All in all, the students had a great time and are still recounting their experiences in lessons.
