All children can reflect on historic events and understand how the past influences and connects the present.

Learning about historic events and people that have shaped our local environment over time, leads to discussion about future ambitions and goals.

Across the school, children explore different periods of History and learn about where key figures and events fit into a chronological timeline. Children have the opportunity to explore the lives of these influential characters that have inspired generations, or those who have quietly affected change throughout their lifetime. Links are made to other curricular subjects to ensure the children can identify the cause and effect of cultural, political and social change in context.
