Children in Key Stage One are introduced to History by exploring notable people such as Florence Nightingale and events such as The Great Fire of London. They use photographs, artwork and artefacts to increase their understanding of the past as well as listening to stories and sequencing events.
As the children move into Key Stage Two they study: The Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age; Ancient Egypt; Mayan Civilisation; The Victorians and Ancient Greece. The children investigate Local History at different periods of time from The Romans through to the history of our school.
The children have the opportunity to visit museums and sites of interest. We also have visitors who come into school to present workshops and performances.
We celebrate History with parents and carers by inviting them to our Living Museum day, Museum in the Classroom and Local History day. We welcome contributions from parents and carers with their own historical knowledge.
