Welcome to our History Club page!
History club are a group of curious students who come together on a Tuesday afternoon to learn about history!
History club meet on Tuesdays at 2:35. Anyone is welcome to join at any stage during the year.
In term one, we learned about the skills of a historian, the Celts, Ancient China and the Black Death. This term we will be looking at Ancient Rome in depth, the Russian Revolution and history of the local area.
There’s lots to come from History club!
History of Medicine
We have been looking at history in a different way this week. We have looked at a particular theme across history, the history of Medicine and Healthcare. Here we are learning about medicine and healthcare in Medieval England.
To celebrate the anniversary of women’s enfranchisement, we discussed the Suffragette movement in Britain and Ireland. We learned about an important Irish suffragette, Hanna Sheehy Skeffington.
We researched an important Irish woman (Mary Robinson, Hanna Sheehy Skeffington, Rosie Hackett etc.) and then presented our research to the history club group. We really enjoyed learning about the Suffragettes!
