KS3 Horrible Histories Club

The KS3 Horrible Histories club has been up to lots of fun and interesting things so far this year! Some of the highlights are below…

Creation of our own ‘Horrible Histories’ episode. In groups, the horrible histories members have scripted, costumed and directed their own little skits based on an area/individual within History that they find particularly interesting. Our wonderful year 10 helpers have then taken charge of editing and putting the skits together… final product to be announced, stay tuned!

We hosted our own gameshow, following the same format as ITV’s ‘The Chase’. This activity saw teams of 4 take on our resident chaser- Mr Flanagan in a series of quick fire question rounds, with question categories ranging from historical knowledge, to geography, Disney and even the Kardashians! Our chaser put up an impressive performance, managing to catch most of our teams. However, the chaser suffered 2 crushing defeats by both a year 9 and year 8 team.

Other activities taking place in Horrible Histories club include; watching episodes of the show, playing various games such as stop the bus or pictionary, creating our own “horrible historical recipes” and most recently creating our own Roman style mosaics.
