Coordinator Mr G Hobson
History is taught throughout school and involves a wide range of exciting topics covering many years of History. As part of the development of their Knowledge and Understanding of the World pupils in Reception learn about a variety of topical issues throughout the year. Through fun and practical activities pupils learn about the History of Bonfire Night and the Nativity Story for example. In Key Stage One they begin to develop an understanding of time lines as they learn about the history of seaside holidays, the Fire of London, the Victorians, toys and mining (particularly children in the mines). They also begin to learn about the lives of famous people in History. History is brought to life through exciting educational visits and role play throughout school. As pupils progress through school they develop an understanding of important periods in History; the Stone Age, the Mayan civilisation, the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans and the Vikings. Local History is also explored as well as the history behind significant topical issues throughout the year; Remembrance Day and Bonfire Night are just two examples.
