Year 7 and 8 spent some time over Activities Week researching their local environment. They used various primary sources and
investigated like historians! The students particularly enjoyed analysing the school board records and noticing the changes in
schools since then. Students in the 1800s had time off school for potato picking and most children had left school by 11 years of
age. Students created a display and powerpoint presentations on the changes in Culcheth from the medieval period to the modern day
