The approach to learning in History is one of investigation and enquiry, using artefacts, photographs, paintings, DVDs, music, ICT, visits and the experiences of different people. Children begin by learning about themselves, their families and the history of their locality. As they get older, they learn to use historical documents and to recognise and interpret historical evidence.
History is taught largely through topics. In addition to British history, children study Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and Ancient China. A number of the history topics also involve educational visits to local museums and other relevant places of historic interest. We aim to make history both thought provoking and fascinating.
