At Bromet Primary School we thoroughly enjoy and engage well in our history topics, through a range of mediums with the aim to encourage inquisitive learners and 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 promote history through the use of our class blogs, to showcase and celebrate our learning. Most importantly, we provide relevant cross-curricular links with the core and foundation subjects as it is important to widen the children’s learning to develop essential enquiry skills. Our home learning in KS2, often consists of projects allowing family members to contribute to their child’s learning. We believe this is essential to keep the flame of enjoyment of learning alive and encourage diverse understanding of different cultures and heritage. For more information please see our Erasmus link on our website! 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.
