‘A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.’
We ensure that children gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world.
Through a very 'hands on' approach, including topic buzz days, drama visits and school trips History becomes very relevant to each child and their curiosity to know more about the past is sparked. Each year group equips pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, look closely at evidence and arguments to come to their own thoughts and judgements. Through our teaching of history children understand the complexity of people's lives, changes through time and the diversity of the world around us.
Please see below some examples of history being taught at St Paul's.
At St. Paul's we like to use artefacts as much as possible to stimulate historical enquiry throughout the school. The children use their inquisitive minds to ask questions, deduce and infer information about life in the past.
