Learning activity details

The Hit Squad - Sharing the Past with the Future
This project was established through the development of a talented group of year 9 pupils who had a passion for both History and ICT. These pupils would raise the profile of the history department in the school by using student voice to develop resources. Their skills would then be applied to a range of different learning activities which would enhance their own abilities whilst also helping others in their year group to develop their history knowledge and make stronger links within the community.
