Good morning/afternoon to you all! Thank you all so much for the hard work and effort a number of you have been putting in to furthering your learning of Humanities at home. It has been wonderful to see the creation of historical foods, documentaries being watched and discussed as well as critiqued amongst family members, written essays and surveys being carried out. Also the fieldwork and little trips that have been taken (safely!) have also been amazing to see and it is a testament to your ambition to learn new things outside of the classroom that makes me proud to celebrate your achievements. Please continue to send in work/ photos of everything you are doing in both History and Geography and remember to engage with the core concepts of our Infinity Curriculum wherever you can. We can't wait to see you in person again and take this even further! Stay safe and thank you so much again for all of your hard work.
