Humanities Faculty Impact Day for Years 4 and 8
23rd April 2018
Summer Term had an exciting start for Years 4 and 8 as they took part in the Humanities Faculty’s Impact Day.
Students took part in a series of workshops aimed to extend and challenge student knowledge in the subject areas of English, History, Geography and Religious Studies.
The workshops consisted of a range of activities focused on the theme of diaries. These included an insight into how animals perceive our world, and a focus on an 18th century diarist who visited Teignmouth and described the way that the people dressed as ‘barbarous’. They also used their artistic skills to create a spectacular mural covering the history of Teignmouth.
Impact Days at Trinity aim to encourage students to learn more about that particular faculty’s subjects in an exciting and engaging way, highlighting the subjects and opportunities on offer for their future choices and pathways.
Workshops allow students to develop their subject knowledge and personal skills including working with others, as they work with students from different age groups in a range of challenging workshops. Students from both the Preparatory and Senior departments working together is an important part of Trinity’s whole school approach and a key part of students’ development.
“It was fun working with Year 8”, one Year 4 student noted, while a Year 8 student said “I loved showing Year 4 around all day and helping them in the workshops.” The day ended with a parent tea in the refectory and the popcorn and cake was certainly enjoyed by all.
Look out for the mural displayed around the school!
