A Taste of A Level HistoryPosted on: 7th Jun 2021
As part of our Taster Days Programme, 14 students who have just finished Year 11 from La Retraite and other schools across Lambeth and neighbouring boroughs, came along to gain an insight of what the A Level history course at the La Retraite 6 involves.
Based on the 1956 Richard Hamilton collage ‘Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?’ students were given a decade that is covered in our A Level syllabus and challenged to construct their own version of the collage, including iconic representations of that decade, and to explain why they had included those images. These will be printed in all their glorious colour and used as display pieces in the History department.
