History is taught under the strand heading of ‘Understanding of the World’ in Nursery and Reception and they include the fun topics of Once Upon a Time, Dinosaurs, and Streets Through Time.
In the Infants and the Juniors, we cover many topics that include British History; Ancient Civilisations; Local, European, and Non-European Societies; Significant Individuals; and many more. We use these topics to build on children’s abilities to analyse similarities and differences across civilisations and time periods. The children gain the ability to interpret sources, understand contrasting arguments and create historically valid questions.
The teaching of the topics is aided by resources, trips, and interactive teaching techniques, which engage the students, and embed a love of the past.
