In October, the children in Years 5 and 6 were invited to take part in the Oratory School’s Carton de Wiart History Competition. The competition was based on ‘Significant Historical Events’ and the children were invited to submit a piece of work about their chosen event, in any form they wished.
We were inundated with essays, videos, posters and pamphlets about a variety of topics, including votes for women, the introduction of the NHS, the attack on Pearl Harbour and the French Revolution, but only five could be put forward to the judging panel for consideration.
We are delighted that Annabelle from Year 6 was the overall winner with her essay about the historical significance of The Plague and what we can learn from it, compared to the COVID-19 pandemic. She was joined at the results ceremony by fellow finalists, Harry and Marnie.
Thank you to all the children who took part and to The Oratory School for hosting the competition.
Head of History
