Year 10 pupils at Rydal Penrhos got the opportunity to bolster their history knowledge during a recent visit to the fantastic Sick to Death Chester exhibition and tour.
Learning in the classroom remains at the heart of a good education. But our incredible teaching staff at Rydal Penrhos are always looking for ways to boost development and allow pupils to sample new experiences whenever they can.
This is done through trips and educational visits throughout the academic year, which are now back in full swing after a significant period of disruption due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Year 10 history pupils currently going through their GCSE modules were given the chance to take in a hugely popular exhibition and tour not too far from Rydal Penrhos at the Sick to Death experience in Chester.
Sick to Death is a historical attraction located in St Michaels Church, a redundant building on the Bridge Street Rows which opened in May 2021.
It depicts the story of medicine through the ages, with a focus on pandemics and plagues. Something that has become prevalent in modern-day society over the last two years as coronavirus spread across the globe.
Pupils were given an insight into major tragedies such as the Black Plague, examined what medicines were used centuries ago and even got the chance to explore the gory story of diseases, doctors and dying in the medieval world with a balance of hands-on fun as well as viewing plenty of incredible museum artefacts.
This was a highly beneficial visit for the group and everyone at Rydal Penrhos would like to thank the staff at Sick to Death Chester for such a warm welcome and enjoyable day.
