Over the past couple of weeks Y7 pupils have been crafting stylish pieces of analytical history writing. Their work, which has focussed on the impact of the terrifying Black Death on England’s medieval villages, has included dramatic role-plays, reading a challenging extract from the world renowned historian Simon Schama, as well as their own writing tasks. All of this has culminated in some wonderfully engaging pieces of historical writing that demonstrate that UHS pupils know how to write about History with style!
It has been tremendous to see the pupils’ enthusiasm for the tasks at hand and the resultant progress in their writing abilities. Extended writing is a demanding skill, especially when doubled up with the complexities of medieval society and the economic structures rocked by an apocalyptic epidemic. A huge well done to our wonderfully talented Y7 pupils!
