Foundation subject

Through the teaching of History, we aim to foster a fascination and interest in the past. We provide opportunities for the children to explore and question the world around them by looking into historical events, people and places. This allows them to develop an understanding of attitudes, actions, ideas and beliefs.

We encourage visitors into school to help bring history to life, talking about their own experiences and sharing artefacts. In addition, we visit sites of historical importance and take part in real life History days, where children gain a greater understanding of how the events in the past have influenced our lives today.
