History - Infant Class

Our history topics provide the children with exciting and engaging opportunities to develop their historical knowledge about real people and events.  The history of Britain and that of the wider world influences all of our lives; it shapes the customs and beliefs of the communities to which we belong.  Learning about the past and the methods used to study it helps children to make sense of the changing world in which they live and provides them with valuable cultural capital.  History enables children to develop important skills that will enable them to become lifelong learners. We believe that history should offer opportunities to introduce children to what is involved in understanding and interpreting the past, and to help them to develop a sense of identity through learning about the past.

​We provide a stimulating curriculum which the children really enjoy from learning about local history, The Plague in the local village of Eyam, The Great Fire of London to Famous People.
