History 10-13

Exploring History with Lacey

Due to lack of numbers this class will not run in term 3.
We hope to offer this programme at an earlier time slot in term 4.

What: This class is for home educated children aged 10-13 years (capable 9yr olds welcome)

When: Thursdays 2:00pm -3:00pm (commencing term 3, 30/07)

Where: North Shore YMCA, 5 Akoranga Drive, Northcote *Rendle Room

About the Course:
We will explore the more human side of history by examining different influential figures, learning fun and interesting facts about their lives and the era they lived in.  

In term three, our theme will be “Monarchs: Medieval to Early Modern, 1066 – 1603”. We will look into the lives of famous rulers like: William I, Richard I, John, Henry V, Richard III, Henry VIII, Mary I, and/or Elizabeth I.

These classes will have a relaxed atmosphere, but children will need to be well behaved and be willing to contribute in some class discussion (it won’t be scary, it will be fun). We will complete a simple worksheet in class and jot down a few notes. There will be a tiny bit of research to be done at home each week: 2-3 sentences about the person studied. Students will be asked to share some of their findings the following week in class, or at least their favourite fact or any other interesting gem they discovered. Hopefully we’ll have some time each week to play a history-themed game too.

About the Tutor:
Lacey was home educated and is the eldest of four. Since she was very young, Lacey has been passionate about all things history. She is studying towards an English / History degree at Auckland University and is in the second year of her BA. Lacey would like to share her passion and encourage younger students to explore the past, and learn more about the incredible people and events that have shaped our history.
