Fistory! When French meets History!

15th Dec 2016

Year 8 could have been forgiven for thinking Miss Campbell needed an early Christmas break, when she announced the class would be studying 'Fistory' for an hour. Contrary to rumour, the teacher had not taken leave of her senses but was engaging in a little cross-curricular education. Joined by Madame McGrath - French teacher and Head of Year 8 - the class began their study of La Bataille d'Hastings. 

Matching scenes from the Bayeux Tapestry to English and French captions, the students were assisted by History and French teachers for facts and pronunciation. The enthusiastic babble in the classroom and energy of the pupils suggests they would welcome further 'Fistory' lessons.
