The History Department has been working with students in KS3 to commemorate Remembrance Week in school.
This has included work by many of our KS3 History club run by Miss Thomas Stone where the students created their own poppies and completed some local research of fallen Bath victims of WW1 and WW2, with some even finding family members to commemorate. This has helped form a new display in the Humanities department that has reflections on the importance of Remembrance Day. Why poppies are a sign of remembrance and prayers written to honour the fallen.
If any students (or parents or carers) want to have a poppy named after someone in their family history, please contact a member of the History Department and we would love to add this to our display.
Students also had an assembly on Remembrance with Head of History, Mrs Sarbatta. The key themes this year were how we remember our fallen including those who fought for Britain as part of the empire including Australia, South Africa and India. The students learn about the vital role of the Commonwealth nations in their Year 9 History lessons.
