'Love One Another As I Have Loved You' (John 15:12)

* Badgers Swimming Lessons start Tuesday 16th April *

Our History pathway inspires children to think like historians, examine evidence and debate conclusions. We provide a curriculum that encourages children to make sense of the present as well as the past, and to appreciate the complexity and diversity of human societies and development. We provide enriched building blocks of progress in history, identifying essential knowledge and challenging vocabulary. We value the importance of children developing chronological knowledge and developing a ‘mental timeline’ of the past. Children have the opportunity to explore and discuss the past every day using our outdoor timeline!
