History Detective Club (KS3)
Love History? Enjoy solving historical mysteries? Fascinated by ‘hidden’ stories? Want to unlock the ‘secrets of the past’? Then this is the club for you! What we investigate each week is guided by you, the club members. Some of the questions we have researched and debated previously have included: Was the Titanic sinking faked? What is the Bermuda triangle? What is the Mandela effect? We also made our very own suffragettes! What could be more fun? And you get to learn to some great new stuff too! So, if you love all things History, come and join the History detectives!
Parallel History (KS4 & 5)
Don’t shy away from competing and controversial narratives – seek them out, lay them side by side and challenge your own understanding! Parallel Histories offers a new way to study the history of conflict – history which is still contested, controversial and relevant. We will look at controversial and divisive topics that are rooted in history and have a huge impact on society today. For example the roots of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through to the present day and a history of the Union between England and Scotland, told from both British Unionist and Scottish Nationalist points of view. We will engage with academic arguments to prepare for online debates with other participating schools. This enrichment activity is for Year 9 students and above.
