Update 29th April 2020

Thanks to anyone who has taken part in my History Makers diary challenge - don't forget to email me with anything you've done!

This week I'd like you to research the history of the NHS. What does is stand for? When was it founded? Who founded it? How has it changed over the years? 


You could present your information as a poster, picture or leaflet. As ever, send me anything you have made!

Hello History Makers!


We are living through an extraordinary period of history. In years to come, historians will look back at 2020 and the shutdown that coronavirus created. You will be in the position to tell your experiences and explain what happened and what it was like for normal people. In historical terms, you will be primary sources!


Your history challenge is to create a weekly diary about what you've been up to. This could be written, drawn or even videoed. This will become historical evidence which historians may one day study!


Email me anything exiting you've done and I'll add onto this page.


Good luck and take care


Mr Atkinson
