Currently, we teach history across the school using topic based learning. Each year group focusses on an area of either British or International history. This then becomes an overarching theme for the term, integrating cross-curricular learning. We bring the past to life through educational visits, theme days and using real artefacts.
These sessions are taught on alternate half terms after Geography units are taught.
As well as discrete history lessons, we celebrate national and international historical events such as Black History Month (focusing on the key changes in our world’s history as we explore key figures and achievements of those people both present and past) and Remembrance Day.
