Higham Ferrers Junior School visit to Chichele college

Higham Ferrers Junior School pupils had a wonderful time visiting Chichele College as part of the living history of Higham Ferrers. They were all given an opportunity to:

  • sketch in the medieval gardens
  • use a quill and ink to write with
  • watch the Higham Ferrers Charter video
  • take a History quiz
  • look at artefacts and try on helmets from WW2
  • plant bulbs (yellow and red for Henry Chichele's colours).

Some comments from pupils during the week:

  • Jenna, "The garden was really cool seeing all the old things."
  • Isabelle, "I loved trying on the hats and sketching the big gate."
  • Lucy, "The film was very creative."
  • "The garden was nice and peaceful." Rachel.
  • Katie, "I liked planting the flower bulbs, it was a bit dirty but fun."
