History

Overview

History introduces our children to what has happened in the past and how this has shaped our present and future, both locally and in the wider world. We aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to find out more. They learn how to ask questions about events, look at evidence and develop their decision making skills.The teaching and learning of history is based upon discussions, use of primary and secondary resources, debate, role play, field work and first hand experiences. This includes dressing up days, and trips out of school.
