Welcome to the Junior History page on the Cowfold Village History website!

This page is being used to showcase work that pupils at St Peter’s School have done, and will do, as part of their history syllabus. We hope that parents and other visitors to the site and this page will enjoy the selection of current and future work.

Over time we also hope that this part of the website will help in a small way to encourage pupils to develop an even greater enjoyment of history and the legacy of the village and area in which they live. A key part of this will be the annual award of the Robert Farren Shield which the History Society is presenting formally to the School on 11 October 2017 and which, together with a £20 book token, will be given to the pupil who has shown the most “enthusiasm for history and advanced enquiry skills”.

Examples of students’ work

The following examples are taken from work done by Year 6 students during 2016/17. They have been chosen in conjunction with Giles Kolter, Head Teacher, and Dan Langdon, Year 6 Teacher, at St Peter’s School. We think that these examples demonstrate real skill in the use of descriptive language, word construction, imagination and drawing; we particularly liked Robyn Morton’s portrait of a soldier and we are not sure that any of us would want to meet him on a dark night!

So very well done to Robyn Morton, Drew Siviter, Elliot Nelson and Flynn Jackson.
