    Year 10 History - French Salon

    Daisy Palmer organised a simulation of a 18th Century Paris Salon from the Age of Enlightenment for the entirety of our history lesson today. She put hours of preparation into the lesson which involved the pupils acting, in role, as European and North American philosophers, economists, scientists and essayists. As 'hostess' she invited her assembled guests, which included Rousseau, Voltaire, Jefferson and Locke, to engage in conversation on science, progress, government and the nature of man.
    Impressive and imaginative - well done Daisy!
