at Alwoodley Primary School
Our vision for History is that all children develop skills through an enquiry approach.
In History pupils are encouraged to question their understanding of the past allowing them to enjoy all that History has to offer. Through the use of artefact and exciting trips, pupils gain an in-depth understanding of significant events in British history as well as appreciating how things change over time. Without History, there would be no future!

History Long Term Plan
As part of their local history study, Year 6 visited Armley Mills. They became Victorian children for the day! They were fantastic in role.
This month we have been celebrating Black History month. We have spent some time understanding the history of African-Americans, their contributions to the world and how they suffered in the past. We have listened to a very famous speech called 'I have a dream' by Martin Luther King. Take a look at how they have inspired us!
Year 6 have been developing their chronological skills by creating timelines in History.
17th July 1955
Look at the picture. Can you guess what might have happened on this day in 1955?
Year 1 children have been focusing on significant people and discussing changes beyond living memory. Year 1 have been understanding the ways in which travel and transport has changed throughout history. Using Neil Armstrong children have been talking about what they know about the inventions of transport and how they have changed over time.
Year 2 have learnt about the life of a Darling child through drama activities. They talked about the different roles that boys and girls would have in the Lighthouse and how busy they would be! I think some of the children decided that they were glad they had not been born now as they were very tired.
Year 4 have been focusing on significant people in black history. They have been looking at Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Rosa Parks and Mary Seacole. They have been using a range of sources to create non-chronological reports.
Year 5 have been exploring events in World War Two. They have been looking at a novel titled 'Silver Sword' by Ian Serraillier.
Year 6 have visited Abbey House Museum really helped us to realise how Crime and Punishment has changed over time! They even got to solve their own Murder Mystery!
