I will also put a link to free past papers at the bottom of this letter that can be downloaded and printed off.


History: Our topic this term is The History of Human Rights and Equality in Britain. We will be discussing exactly what human rights are and looking at those rights as children and women along with Racial Equality and Freedom of thought, belief and religion.

All these written with appropriate punctuation which we will also be practising.
