The National Curriculum provides the framework for the thematic teaching of History. We aim to inspire and engage pupils and heighten their understanding of History through the learning challenge approach. Pupils will be involved in a deeper learning experience by posing their own questions and discovering the answer through a variety of experiences such as: school trips, visitors, stories and research. All of which will be enhanced by a range of technology in school.
During this term the whole school learned about Remembrance through a variety of activities. The Year 6 children also produced as assembly.
Also during their History work on Conflict and World War Two the children in Year 6 visited, designed and created an Anderson shelter.
In Year 1 the children have been using toys to learn about the past. They have been comparing old and new teddy bears as well as making a time line for a 6 year old boy showing all the toys he has played with.
We have had a very exciting summer term so far. In Year 1 the children have been learning about The Beatles as well as the different ways we used to listen to music. The children had enormous fun using a record player to listen to singles and albums by The Beatles. There was a lot of twisting and shouting.
