Year 7 Historians examine life during the Black Death
Year 7 History pupils have been studying Medieval England, which included an in depth case study on the Black Death. They explored medieval beliefs around the cause of the pestilence and drew on their understanding of current public health measures to explain the relative success and failures of quarantine, isolation and attempts to cure the Black Death. This topic was concluded with an investigation into the impact of the Black Death on society. Year 7 pupils have consolidated their learning by writing their own historical fiction on the time period. They have produced excellent, well written pieces that demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of this key event in world history.
