A GIANT wall display to support students has been wowing budding historians.

Children at Silver End Academy were amazed when the history timeline was unveiled last week.

The 7m weatherproof display shows a timeline of human history and has also had details about the village of Silver End incorporated into the design.

Since its arrival, the school says conversations about events, people and civilisations have given the playground a real buzz at break time.

Spokesman Mrs Smith said: “The discussions that have been generated have been inspiring.

“Children now have the opportunity to really understand the order in which world history has evolved.

“They are questioning, exploring and highlighting their own knowledge.

“Chronology is a difficult concept for children, but our beautiful timeline will support lessons and act as a focal point to expand children’s understanding.”

The school says the timeline will ensure pupils have positive discussions about the past and the history resource will continue to excite children into the future.
