History

 Pupils develop an awareness of the past and of common words and phrases relating to the passing of time.  They learn where the events and people they study fit within a chronological framework and identify similarities and differences between ways of life and in different periods. The school has museum artefacts which the children can explore.

 

In history lessons children are taught about:

  • changes within living memory. 
  • events beyond living memory that are significant nationally or globally, for example, the Great Fire of London, the first aeroplane flight or events commemorated through festivals or anniversaries. 
  • the lives of significant individuals in the past who have contributed to national and international achievements. Opportunities are used to compare aspects of life in different periods, for example, Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria, Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong, Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell.
  • significant historical events, people and places in their own locality.

 

The school building itself is a historical resource and we have log books and a punishment book written in by Headteachers dating back to the early 1900s. In the Summer term 2016 we held a school/parish history day when we invited people to bring in and share old photos relating to the school. Year two children had the opportunity to converse with our visitors. New acquaintances were made and family names were even located in the punishment book! We hope to repeat this event again.
