History

Children are taught how the past is different from the present to build an awareness of past events and people.  We teach chronology by sequencing and ordering events and using language relevant to the passage of time.  Children learn some of the ways we find out about the past.  Topics include Castles, Famous People, Grandparents and Life at the time the school was built.  Topics sometimes conclude with a full cross curriculum day where the children and adults dress up and take part in a wide range of activities, e.g. Castle Day, and we also enable the children to visit local museums to deepen their experiences.
