I enjoy history because it enables me to develop a better understanding of the world in which we live. The topics I have studied so far have allowed me to build my knowledge and understanding of historical events and trends and this has also enabled me to develop a much greater appreciation for current events today. Some of my favourite topics have been the study of The Native Americans, The Black Death and The Battle of Hastings. These have been very informative and enjoyable to learn about. I look forward to learning about more historical events and I hope to study history as one of my GCSE option subjects.
