History

“History – developing an understanding of the past, to influence the future”

History is taught through our cross curricular topic planning and is often closely linked to other subjects, such as Art, Literacy, Maths, ICT and Geography. Children study key historical events, periods, people and changes throughout time. They also learn to order key events and people in history, interpret evidence and explain and communicate their findings. In doing this children develop strong enquiry and research skills through questioning, observations and discussions. They broaden their knowledge of history through a range of primary and secondary sources including the use of role play, dance, songs, stories, trips and visitors to school.
