History

Mrs Dearing and Mrs McAlpine are our History Leaders

 

History is taught through a topic-based approach and gives pupils a chance to explore a wide range of sources from which the past may come alive. In Reception this is achieved via our active curriculum which encourages children to immerse themselves in learning about the world around them. Through practical experiences such as celebrations of Diwali, Christmas and the Chinese New Year children gain an appreciation of culture and tradition. In year 1 the children learn about the history of toys and think about their own favourites! The children also research and enquire about historical figures such as Florence Nightingale. In year 2 the children study World War One and the Great Fire of Warwick and look at how these events shaped our lives. The curriculum encourages enquiring thinkers who understand how change and development occurs over time which enables them to contrast the past to the present day.
