    Jul 2017 - Historical Fiction at QEGS

    On the 4th and 5th of July QEGS welcomed year 5 students from Biggin, Osmaston, Long Lane, Sudbury, Parwich, Kirk Ireton and Longford to the first QEGS Historical Fiction day. The students were able to learn about different periods in history (Including Ancient Egypt, the Middle Ages, The Victorians and WWII) and then turn what they learnt into their own pieces of historical fiction.

    The event was held in the library and was organised by Mr Constable from History and Mr Walker from English. Students not only got to use the wealth of books and resources in the library but they also got hands on experience with items including genuine Wedgewood presses, an authentic bomber jacket from WWII, a large scale model of a Medieval Castle as well as a series of Egyptian artifacts and pictures/documents from the different periods in history kindly supplied by members of the QEGS staff.

    The year 5s greatly enjoyed the day and Mr Walker and Mr Constable are already looking forward to next year.
