Through the study of important events and developments in our history, children are helped to develop an understanding of the past and how the past has helped to shape present day life.
They are encouraged to develop research skills through an inquiry based approach, which will enable them to draw conclusions from the available evidence.
Wherever possible they are introduced to the evidence first hand e.g. during enrichment days in school, visits to museums or places of interest, documents, artifacts pictures, photographs, music and computer based materials. Importance is also placed on the history of our own locality.
