History Subject Leader: Miss K Milligan
It is our aim to encourage pupils to develop an understanding and appreciation of the past and how individuals and events in the past have shaped our society today. Children will be inspired to be curious about the past, developing their own ideas, opinions and questions when evaluating primary and secondary sources. They will present like a historian and will use subject specific vocabulary when offering their ideas and posing their questions. Our historians will be supported in understanding how these sources give us an insight into how people in Britain and the wider world used to live and how interpretations can differ.
