History

‘A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots.’

 

Marcus Garvey

At St. Paul’s Catholic Primary School, we believe that History encourages pupils to consider how the past has influenced the present, and how a variety of elements influenced people’s actions. History also develops the skills of researching and evaluating evidence, the knowledge of past events, civilisations and personalities and the concepts of chronology. Learning about the past can influence pupils’ attitudes to the present and the future.

 

Through a '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.

Stone Age Art - Year 3

Stone Age Art - Year 3 1

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. 

What do you think this artefact could be? When do you think it was made? What was it used for?
