History

 

Throughout both KS1 and KS2 History is taught as a discrete subject. Within KS1 learning centres around the children’s living memory, extending to include significant historical events, people and places. Our topics include ‘The Great Fire of London’. The children will learn about their local area and significant figures such as Florence Nightingale. In Years 3-4 the children will develop their knowledge and understanding of British History to 1066. Topics include: Stone Age to Bronze Age, The Roman Empire and its impact on Britain, Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. In Years 5-6 there is the opportunity to extend children’s knowledge beyond 1066 with studies of children’s experiences during the Victorian era and WWII as well as a local history study. Further to this, the children will extend their knowledge of world history with in-depth studies of Ancient Egypt and Ancient Greece. Throughout both key stages, we aim to inspire children’s curiosity and equip them to ask perceptive questions; so that they can become masters of historical enquiry!
