We aim to give children a good knowledge of chronology through teaching them about events and famous people from the past. History is taught in our creative curriculum through cross curricular links e.g. Literacy and Art, using the National Curriculum Key Stage 1 objectives.
We use old artefacts and visit places of interest, with a historical theme e.g. Cannon Hall Farm, The Yorkshire Mining Museum, to increase children's knowledge and understanding of the past.
We welcome residents from the community to come into school and talk to the children about their lives, and changes that have taken place.
