Overview

It is essential that our children understand and appreciate History in order for them recognise the role the past has to play in shaping the present and the future. The development of historical skills is fundamental to our children’s learning and they build upon these through our Learning Challenge  work.

There is a structured programme throughout the school where learning is encouraged through the use of a wide range of primary and secondary sources. Through studies of significant periods of British history and Ancient civilisations our children develop historical skills. They gain a knowledge and understanding of people and places of the past along with a timeline of major events and civilisations.
History and Geography Week

As a school we focused on a different decade throughout time. We looked at major events around the world that took place. We also looked at fashion, toys, technology, music, politics and family life. At the end of the week the school came together in fancy dress to share our learning. Children dressed up as influential people of their decade or wore particular fashion.
