It is our aim at The Churchside Federation to provide a high-quality, history education that will encourage children to have a fascination of the world around them by gaining a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It will inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Our teaching will equip pupils with a thirst for knowledge, the essence of this approach will require more than simply answering questions or getting the answer right. We encourage them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. At Churchside Federation we aim to bring History to life.
History makes a contribution to SMSC by:-
- Looking at the establishment of multi-cultural Britain.
- Showing an awareness of the moral implications of the actions of historical figures.
Stone-Age day at Gressenhall
Skylarks went to Gressenhall as part of their Stone Age learning. We handled artefacts, learnt how to flint knap, build shelters and even prepare land for farming and grinding wheat.
