In 2016 we achieved the Gold Standard History Quality Mark to recognise the quality of our provision and commitment to the subject. We were thrilled to receive this award. We continue to offer this and History is still celebrated and held in high regard in our curriculum. The children love the trips and visits linked to their learning in History as well as the Experience Days we offer where children get to build settlements, cook and share the food of the past, take part in recreational activities associated with that time in History and live life like the people of the past. Children tell us that these re-enactment days help them to act and feel what it would be like in that time in History which helps them to remember the knowledge and facts they are learning.


In History, learning sequences are taken from The National Curriculum document. The school vision and values underpin how we teach the History units of work to answer the Big Questions we have set, such as ‘What impact did the Anglo Saxons have?’, ‘Was it really the Dark Ages?’ and ‘What was important to our local Victorians? or ‘Florence Nightingale versus Mary Seacole: Who is more famous?’ 

The children will develop a range of History skills and knowledge; having opportunities to take part in 'Experience Days’ where they work practically and through re-enactment and play to experience life like a time in the past. Trips, visits and visitors enhance the History curriculum and give the children other memorable ways to remember what they have learnt.
