At St George’s C of E Primary School, we aim for our children to develop knowledge of key historical national and global events. We aim for the children to understand where each period of time fits within the chronology of history as a whole. We provide, our children with opportunities to revisit previous topics throughout their education at St. George’s to enable them to embed their understanding.

From an early age, we ensure that all children take an active part in investigating the past and enjoy a range of first and second-hand experiences. All the children have the opportunity to use a range of resources and artefacts to investigate the past.

Additionally, our children experience exactly what life was like in the past through educational visits, external experts and topic-themed days. As well as curriculum-based topics, the children are involved in recognising significant dates, people and events (Black History Month, St. George’s Day etc.)

Overall, we want all children to develop a love of history and create memories that they will remember for the rest of their lives.
