There has been so much going on recently, we are behind with posts. College I are developing their ideas for their personal studies and have also been introduced to using maps in history by Emily Parton. Coming soon, various things, from Year 9 at Beth Shalom to the Key Stage 3 curriculum. It’s about time to think forward to summer and to hunt out great historical things to do wherever we will be. Meanwhile, it is not too late to pick up some really interesting events at The York Festival of Ideas. http://yorkfestivalofideas.com/2013/. Michael Wood this week on Athelstan was wonderful!
We also want to give a plug for the Human Rights Film Festival on this weekend. Amelia will be introducing the ISSP’s short film contribution at 6 PM at The Tempest Anderson Hall. Or you can catch the films at 7.30 in the crypt of the Minster – very atmospheric. Has anyone been to the new Undercroft yet? What do we think?
Great resources about Power, Princes and Priests, based on The Minster and Clifford’s Tower, have been made by York History PGCE students and our students will be benefiting from their expertise shortly.
Year 7 have been Investigating York again and were back at The Mansion House learning about the city’s response to World War One. Unbelievable that a 100 year old box of chocolate can still smell chocolate-y!
