Achieving The Best Together


Our History Curriculum

“History isn’t just about  the past. It’s about why we are who we are—and about what’s next” (Tony Robinson Actor/Historian). We teach history through the use of artefacts, resources, first hand experiences from members of the community, ICT, drama, and visits. Children learn about the recent  past and distant past from a variety of aspects, but usually comparing it with their own lifestyle. They also learn how to research and question the past and understand that it can be interpreted in different ways.
