History

History is taught in 2 annual modules (major and minor) from year 1 - 6 by class teachers. 

Why is the teaching of history important for primary schools?

Studying history is important because it allows our pupils to understand the past, which in turn allows them to understand our present. If we want to know how and why our world is the way it is today, we have to look to history for answers. If pupils study the successes and failures of the past, they may, ideally, be able to learn from these mistakes and avoid repeating them in the future.

Studying history also provides our pupils with insight into our culture as well as cultures with which they might be less familiar, thereby increasing cross-cultural awareness, tolerance and understanding.

What is taught? 

Year 1 

Year one are taught about personal history (major module) and about important British individuals (minor module) including Florence Nightingale and Winston Churchill. 

Year 2 

Year two are given the opportunity to study the history of Harlow (major module) and the amazing events surrounding the Great Fire of London (minor module). 

Year 3 

In year 3, pupils will explore the history or our hunter gatherer ancestors in their ancient Britain module (major module) and then move on to explore a variety of significant world individuals (minor module). 

Year 4 

The year 4 programme of study takes pupils back in time to the Roman Era (major module). They will also study the fascinating topic of Victorian Leisure (minor module). 

Year 5 

Year 5 pupils are asked to critically analyse the lives and customs of the Anglo-Saxons (major module). The second module, Homefront Britain (minor module), helps pupils understand the struggles of British people during World War Two. 

Year 6   

Year 6 pupils study the drastic change in Britain's politics and culture in the years following the Norman's (major module) successful conquest of 1066.
