From the Vikings to the Victorian Era
At Bromet Primary School we thoroughly enjoy and engage well in our history topics, through a range of mediums. This inspires pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. As we believe “a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world” (National Curriculum).We cover various topics from learning our personal and family history to the Victorians and so on. This is necessary as history helps to develop the understanding of “process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups” (National Curriculum).
We also use encourage promoting history in various way through using our class blogs, to showcase and celebrate our learning. Most importantly we provide relevant cross- curricular links with the core and foundation subject as it is important to widen the children’s learning to develop key essential enquiry skills. Our home learning often consists of project allowing family members to contribute to their child’s learning. We believe this is essential to keep the flame of enjoyment of learning alive. The following images reflect our history learning so far!
We focus a lot on pupil voice and provide the children the opportunity to express their ideas and understanding.
“I like history because you learn about all of the different cultures and their past. I also like it that you learn all about how people learnt in the past and how different the learning system is now” Year 6 pupil.
