Year 9 have spent the last few months studying the significance of the Second World War. It has been a fascinating topic where students have considered the historical significance of such events as the Blitz, Operation Barbarossa, Hiroshima and the Potsdam Conference. We have discussed the different criteria historians use to determine the significance of events whilst deepening our understanding of the events of 1939-1945. The end of unit knowledge check saw students across Year 9 displaying an impressive understanding of the era along with fantastic disciplinary knowledge.
Head’s Commendations were given to Ruby R, Hattie C, Lucy H and Eden F for the inference skills on show when analysing a Second World War poster. Well done!
