Autumn

The children start by exploring the idea of living memory and the events that can still be remembered by people alive today. We use the history of our school and the Royal Family as a context to explore social change and develop an understanding of the changes our country has gone through.


Spring

In the spring term, the children learn about some of the great explorers that have come before us, including Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. This helps the children consider the impact that people can have on national and international understanding. They examine the different time periods of each explorer and make comparisons between then and now and how the actions of those people have impacted us today.


Summer

In the summer term, the children have an opportunity to apply the skills learnt through their historical learning as they develop their understanding of the area local to our school and questions the reasons for our world being the way it is today.
