History

History is a fascinating subject in a modern world where the past is often relevant to the present as well as the future.  It encourages enquiring minds and a love of finding out, questioning, discussion and discovery using a range of sources, objects, visits and people’s experiences. 

Younger children find out about not only their own Family History, but famous people, such as Florence Nightingale, as well as all about Castles and the History of Toys. This is followed up at a later stage with looking at other civilisations such as the Egyptians, Vikings and Romans. [A real Roman soldier even comes to talk to the pupils – always a popular visit!] 

History is a lively and interactive subject which is taught in a fresh and progressive way.
