Our History is skills based and looks at developing these themes across the different topics: Settlements, Location, Beliefs, Conflict, Society, Main events, Travel and Exploration, Artefacts, Arts and Culture, Food and Farming.

In Key Stage One we develop our understanding of how the past differs from the present through learning about Castles, Kings and Queens, the Great Fire of London and the Gunpowder Plot. We study famous figures including Florence Nightingale, Edith Cavell., Benjamin Britten and Shackleton. We also study the four saints that represent our houses on their saints days throughout the year as part of History, Geography and RE.

In Key Stage Two we study the Stone and Iron ages, the Roman Empire, Ancient Egypt, the Victorians, Mayans, Tudors, Ancient Greece and World War 2.
