History

Our children are immersed in topics such as Dinosaurs and Discovery, Victorian Christmas, Hannibal Crossing the Alps, Castles, the History of Chocolate...

In History, our aim is for the children to become curious about what came before and to develop an understanding of how the past was different from their present. The curriculum teaches about significant men, women, children and events from the recent and more distant past, including those from both Britain and the wider world. Historical skills which the children develop include a sense of chronology, raising questions, how to gain information from artefacts and other sources, comparing and contrasting different time periods, and recognising why people in the past might have acted as they did. The history curriculum is enhanced through school visits and visitors.
