We teach history through a wide range of engaging topics that draw on the new curriculum whilst maintaining the best of the educational content previously offered. We encourage our children to find out about the past by looking at evidence and considering informed opinion by using original sources.
We aim to bring history to life and to instil a desire to find out about our predecessors. Where possible we try to bring the topics to life even more with visits to local venues or from speakers or drama groups. We find this provides the children with valuable chances to relive the past and experience history in an engaging and memorable way. We help our children understand that history means everything that has happened in the past, and also the actual record of what has happened.
