History is often used as the starting point for planning cross-curricular learning in themed units. We endeavour to bring history alive for children through visits to relevant exciting resources.
We encourage pupils to become detectives who explore the past in a multi-sensory manner. History gives pupils a chance to explore a wide historical sites, visiting historians and sourcing a range of range of sources from which the past may come alive. It is not only about learning simple facts and dates but a development of the understanding of history skills such as an understanding of chronology and using first and secondary sources of evidence.
The areas covered are done in a 2 year rolling program. Year A and Year B.
