History

In History the pupils develop a good knowledge of historical topics, acquire a detailed understanding of the past and they learn to ask questions, research evidence, draw conclusions and communicate their findings.

History at our school aims to:-

  • Inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world
  • Encourage thinking about how the past influences the present
  • Support students to develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people
  • Encourage a sense of identity and an increased understanding of pupils’ own position in their own community and the world
  • Develop a range of skills and abilities – particularly those related to finding out about the past, explaining what happened and what people then and now think about what happened

The Year 2 children enjoyed their World War 2 day.  They investigated artefacts from that period and found out what life was like during the war.

The Year 1 children visited Windsor Castle and found out about the history of the castle and the monarchs who have lived and ruled from there.

Year 4 visited the War Museum to update their own understanding of the war and the impact it had on local communities.

Year 3 took part in an Ancient Egyptians workshop in school to discover what life was like for the Pharoahs as well as the ordinary citizens.

Year 4 took part in a Victorians workshop to find out for themselves about life in Victorian times for children, for poor people as well as the rich and the royal family.
