Following on from the excitement of the Royal Wedding, Year 7 students at The Maynard School, Exeter, are getting patriotic and gearing up to explore their identity as part of two exciting cross-curricular days on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 June.

The two days, which are based around the theme ‘What it means to be British’ will challenge the students to explore the diversity within British Culture today. They will learn about how the migration of people to Britain through the ages has shaped our country, our city and the way in which we live our lives. Activities will include a ‘Living History’ tour around Exeter, a very British tea party, investigating the evolution of language in Britain and a ‘Test the Nation’ Quiz

Head of Year, Angela Rowley, who is organising the event said, ‘We all have our own idea of what it means to be British and how you define Britishness: a sense of fair play, a great sense of humour, drinking cups of tea or eating fish and chips! The girls will be taking part in a varied programme, looking into local history and discovering for themselves what being British is all about. It promises to be a fun, engaging and challenging two days.’
