Pupils hit the target with history project
Students down books for bows as part of Tudor period studies.
LAMPARD Community School pupils have been hitting the target with a brand new history project designed to bring 16th century Britain to life.
Middle school youngsters added another string to their bow by trying their hand at archery during their studies into Tudor history.
Seven members of the Littleham-based Kenwith Company of Archers gave up their time for free to spend an afternoon with pupils as part of a two-week pilot project steered by the students themselves
Teacher Pam Page said the ultimate aim of the project was to create a Tudor banquet at the end of the two weeks.

She said: “Students are finding out about what it takes to create a banquet – everything from the type of food, entertainment and sports they had.
“This is a completely new type of project for the school because it is completely student-led.

“It is quite exciting as although we follow the curriculum in a similar way to mainstream schools, this is a little different.
“At the end of the two weeks, we’ll review it to see how successful it has been in terms of both promoting independent learning and helping students work together to achieve a project they can all enjoy at the end.”
