This term year 9 have been working on a cross curricular project involving Design and History. For Design, they have created a puppet based on a key historical figure from the reign of Henry VIII. In History the students have been developing their knowledge of the Tudor period, specifically looking into Henry VIII's reign and the problems he faced. Drawing on their research they have written a dialogue from the perspective of their puppet character which they will perform at the exhibition.
Real Talk is the new 21st century magazine by 21st century students.
