On Friday 17th March, a number of our Year 11 Historians, accompanied by Mr Toomer and Miss Sweeney, visited the Rock Tower in London for the Keynote Germany: Live! Revision conference.
As part of their preparation for their Germany exam in the summer, students from across the country took part in a fantastic experience where key details from the course were discussed by an expert Historian and History teachers. Students were given the opportunity to analyse sources and consider the importance of a number of events involved in the dark history of Nazi Germany. To support their learning, performances by professional actors brought the story to life. We watched as a German family, recovering from the effects of WW1 was swept up in the Nazi movement but ultimately their story ended in sadness, loss and desperation.
The students were a credit to the Academy and we hope that it has a positive impact on their upcoming History exams!
