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
SMSC in History
Year 4 had a special delivery from Leeds Musuem. We had to look carefully at each object to see if we could find any links to our previous topics. We were then given some clues about each object before using some further research about each object. We then created our own exhibition and thought carefully about the title trying to make a link to each object.
This month children have been celebrating Black History Month. Each year group looked at a significant individual within black history and answered a range of enquiry questions. Reception have been learning about good role models. They have been listening and performing songs about the civils right movement. Year 1 have been investigating the achievements of Serena Williams and how they are significant whilst Year 2 have been learning all about the Windrush generation through poetry. Year 3 have been thinking about Muhammed Ali and his legacy whilst Year 4 have been considering a very important question: Does racism impact sporting ability? Year 5 have been learning about Nelson Mandela’s life before considering why Obama’s presidency was significant and Year 6 have been learning all about American segregation and how this impacted individuals at school and work.
Year 6 have been looking carefully at artefacts from the Victorian period to see if they can find out any information about what life was like for the Victorians.
We experienced life in a Victorian workhouse when Martin from the Theatre company 'Alive and kicking' came to visit.
As part of their History topic, Year 6 visited the Victorian school room at Armley Mills
Year 6 have been using Now Press Play to explore what life was like in the workhouse.
