To help children understand the past and how it links to the present, books, videos, photographs, artefacts, adults talking about their past, and written stories are used. Our children are taught about the every day lives of men, women and children at different levels of society. Through a careful study of periods of history they develop a sense of chronology.
Children investigate the physical and human features of their surroundings and gradually become aware that the world extends beyond their own locality, both within and outside the United Kingdom. We give our children opportunities to observe, question and record their ideas and by investigating places and themes we equip our children with geographical skills and associated vocabulary.
