F Form Egyptian Day @portregisschool
First of all Mrs Liddington told us that the Egyptians invented measures, such as cubits, palms and digits. We made papyrus out of reeds and then paint brushes as well as paint out of crushed coloured chalk. In the afternoon we prepared for a Mummification workshop, creating a shroud, death mask, a head for Anubis, some silver scales, canopic jars and prayers in hieroglyphics. The ceremony was then held in the darkened chamber of a classroom and we finished with a secret mystery which no one is allowed to tell. #portregis #egyptian #bringinghistorytolife

We love to see our English, social studies, and theater departments working together at NCS in making history come alive through field trip, teaching and the arts. Members of Mrs. Cathy Smith’s 8th grade English classes are studying the Diary of Anne Frank. These students also visited the Holocaust museum in Washington DC with their 8th grade social studies teacher, Mrs. Watson. These 8th grade students are bringing the play to life, by reading the play in class by flashlight. This is to simulate what life would have been like for the Frank family when forced into hiding from Nazis. The Frank family lived in hiding for 25 months in a tiny attic apartment where they used no electricity, had food and supplies smuggled in from people helping hide them, and lived in complete silence from the hours of 8 am- 6pm to avoid being caught and taken to concentration camps. Students with Jewish character roles must wear or hold yellow stars with the word “Jew” on them. This is to recreate what all Jews were forced to wear in 1942. Want to know what happens to 13 year old Anne Frank, her family, and the others hiding with them? Come see the @ncs.theatre department’s production of Anne Frank. Our PAC is currently being transformed into Anne’s attic apartment. The performances of The Diary of Anne Frank are: Nov. 30 at 9 am; Nov. 30 at 7pm; Dec. 1 at 7pm; and Dec. 2 at 7pm. Adult tickets are $10, and students are $8. #bringinghistorytolife #diaryofannefrank #ncstheater #ncstrojans #8thgradeenglish

The magical and magnificent #dounecastle, courtesy of our lovely guests @liesette1977. It’s not far from #balgediehouseandlodge and is a lovely day trip. And it’s not just for fans of #outlander, #montypython or #gameofthrones who’ll love it, the real history of the place is fascinating. And after exploring the great hall and massive gatehouse one of our favourite things to do is walk round the side of the castle, taking the path down to the banks of the #riverteith. It’s so beautiful, one of our favourite picnic spots, and great for paddling and skimming stones! ❤️🏰.

On 1 July 2016, to coincide with the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, we created a series of pop up performances around The Lit & Phil, Newcastle and Central Station.
Reflections of Newcastle 1914-1918 was a project with the Lit & Phil that explored intellectual, cultural and social life in Newcastle during the First World War. The ibooks created are still available as downloads via the website www.reflectionsofnewcastle.co.uk

It's intricate work! All our items are handcarved to make a master, which will then be used to cast it in pewter, bronze or silver. This one became our large Hiddensee Pendant!

Pictured first is a the letter written by Anne Boleyn to Stephen Gardiner, dated 4 April 1529. It shows the keen interest Anne took in the annulment proceedings. Picture credit to On the Tudor Trail (@themosthappy78)-, it reads;
.
.
"Master Stephen.
I thank you for my letter, wherein I perceive the willing and faithful mind you have to do my pleasure, not doubting but as much as it is possible for man’s wit to imagine, you will do. I pray God to send you well to speed in all matters, so that you will put me in a study how to reward your service. I do trust in God you shall not repent it, and that the end of this journey shall be more pleasant to me than your first, for that was but a rejoicing hope, which ceasing, the lack of it does put to the more pain, and they that are partakers with me, as you do know. Therefore I do trust that this hard beginning shall make the better ending.
Master Stephen, I send you here the cramp-rings for you, and Master Gregory, and Master Peter; pray you to distribute them both, as she, that (you may assure them) will be glad to do them any pleasure which shall be in my power. And thus I make an end, praying God send you good health.
Written at Greenwich the 4th day of April,
By your assured friend,
Anne Boleyn"

Stephen Gardiner, Bishop of Winchester and Lord Chancellor, died #onthisday November 12 in 1555.
.
.
Gardiner (pictured second) was greatly involved in the "Great Matter" - Henry's attempt to have his marriage to Queen Catherine annulled and marry Anne Boleyn (pictured third). .
.
Gardiner was not a reformist. He eventually ended up in the Tower of London in the reign of Edward VI opposing the new religious policies, but was released by Mary I Who made him Lord Chancellor.
.
.
He was involved in the negotiations for the marriage between Mary and Philip of Spain. He took care to make the terms as advantageous for England as possible, with express provision that the Spaniards should in nowise be allowed to interfere in the government of the country.

Our local primary school had some of its funding cut (big problem with many schools in the UK), so we thought we would help where possible. One class this term is learning about the plague in history lesson, so we have printed them a plague mask for show and tell. Hopefully it will inspire the children's imagination.
Edit* this was found on thingiverse designed by syfy** This was printed in two sections and has no post processing done other than gluing together so far. Will clean it up over the weekend. I also got to test our new A2 printer (which needs some further refinements made to it as you can tell from the picture)

Currently reading “The Time Traveller’s Guide to Restoration Britain” by Ian Mortimer, and loving it. .

And not just because of its beautiful cover.

.
Mortimer writes so perfectly, that you feel that you are pretty much in the exciting Restoration period. .
.
Covering the years 1660-1700, discussing what life was like for everyone in England, Scotland and Wales.
.
.
Covering the major events such as ‘The Great Fire of London’, ‘The Glorious Revolution’ etc. Mortimer delves into the changing attitude towards Religion, Science, Theatre, the arts etc. .
.
Journey into the homes and lives of the rich and powerful, as well as the hardworking poor. .
.
This book follows Mortimer’s previous works “The Time Traveller’s Guide to Medieval England” and “The Time Traveller’s Guide to Elizabethan England”.

Y5 have been practising Roman battle formations as part of Roman Day today. #bringinghistorytolife

We had the privilege to do the artwork for an exhibition on the history of The Old Granary in Cape Town. Here are a few snapshots of the installation...
