History is taught by building on knowledge and periods of time in history. Children learn about significant people, events and places from both the recent and more distant past. They look at a range of sources of information to help them investigate the past in depth. A range of trips, visits and visitors are arranged to provide experiential and engaging learning opportunities. Miss Birt is the Subject Lead.
We see History as not just a series of facts and dates but we aim to challenge pupils to become detectives by exploring the past in an exciting way. History enables our children to compare and contrast, to examine why and how things have changed, to learn about historical figures and develop their research skills. We encourage children to be open minded and enquiring thinkers, who begin to understand cause and effect. We want them to understand how people have lived in the past and compare them to life now and how and why things have changed. We provide first-hand experiences through handling real artefacts and though visits which enable pupils to explore their knwoeldge further.
