The Year 7 Social Sciences club has proved a real success with students who like to get creative.

 "The club was set up last September for students who enjoyed their History and Geography lessons and also love making things to enhance their studies," explained Miss Hill, the Social Sciences curriculum assistant.

"This year in History students have been learning about the Normans and the Tudors and are now starting a new topic on North Americans.

"So far they have drawn and coloured a scale replica of the Bayeux Tapestry, made Norman shields and castles and a Tudor model village which will be on display on the street at Parents' Evening."

Students are currently in the throes of making models of totem poles, tepees and dreamcatchers for their North American projects.

Two students, Jason and Sam, have become firm friends having attended every single session and have enjoyed the club so much that they have asked to be lead learners for the new Year 7s in September so they can continue to attend. 

"They will be most welcome!" said Miss Hill.

Jason said he joined the club because "making stuff appealed to me in addition to learning more than just in normal lessons".

Sam added: "I like the club because I can put my knowledge from the lessons into making things."

The club runs on a Tuesday from 3-4pm in SS4.
