History Club- Year 7

History ClubYear 7 History Club is an extra-curricular activity offered to Year 7 students who would like to learn more about history and get involved in making historical models.

Our current project is painting and making a 1/32 scale Roman Bireme ship with 63 crewmen and over 600 parts. (see picture). It costs nothing to join History club and all paint, brushes and models are provided. Students will be taught the various skills to make models – all you need is patience and a way home.

Students will being painting a 1/35 model warrior to develop their skills. History Club is after school on Wednesdays from 3.30 until 5.00pm in room F10.

Students must make sure that they can make it home after this time, perhaps someone to pick them up after work. Students do not have to commit to every Wednesday; just let Mr West know if you will not be there.

Those that attend 20 times in the year will receive a History Club pin to wear and have the opportunity to continue in the club after Year 7. (Currently four students take up that option in Year 8 and 1 in Year 9).

If interested ask Mr West for a permission note or pick up one from the white pigeonholes located in the front office area. Once the form is returned you can start from Wednesday 15th March. (week 8). Why not come along and see what it is like. No problems if you decide it is not for you. See Mr West for further details. Mr Gordon West
