This week, the Year 7 and 8s were lucky enough to participate in a fantastic Chaucer workshop, led by Chris wheeler (Headmaster of Monkton Coombe).
Pupils Drawing Chaucer

Chaucer’s Middle English

After having discussed the origins of the Middle English language, they were tasked with translating the description of the Miller from The Canterbury Tales. Once happy with their interpretation of his appearance, they enjoyed drawing him on the windows of the DHH! The session certainly made the children think about communication and how difficult it is to express yourself when grappling with unfamiliar words.
