Reformation Day is a day of activities for students centred around the study of the European Reformations, one of the main topics covered on our medieval and early modern history A level course. The day was devised by Gavin Sheffield, Curriculum Manager for Medieval and Early Modern History at the Farnborough 6th Form College and Dr Claire Kennan, Project Officer for the Citizens' Project at Royal Holloway.
Throughout the day, students covered four main aspects of the European Reformations, with specific focus on England and Germany. Activities included source-based tasks, university style lectures on the legacy of the Reformation and a question and answer session on how to tackle exam questions. The aim of the day was for the students to gain an appreciation for the Reformation, not only for the sake of their exams, but also for this period as one which had a significant impact on the world today.
