Our Vision for History at St George's

‘Let all that you do be done in Love’ 1 Corinthians 16:14

The example of Jesus Christ and the Good news that he brings inspire St George’s school to be a place of hope and a caring and inclusive community in which we all love to learn and learn to love

‘The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future’ Theodore Roosevelt

History sparks curiosity about the past; what happened in Britain and the wider world. It poses questions about why people did what they did, what decisions people made and why. It promotes enquiry for pupils to discover the answers about different groups of people and the times in which they lived. History is essential to the past, present and future and without it we would not know much about our ancestors and how to deal with current problems. As history is all around us, it helps us to understand change and societal developments. This provides children with the context to understand themselves and the challenges we face to appreciate the world in which we live today.

Have a look at what we have been doing in our History lessons:

Year 3 have learnt all about what life was like in the Stone Age and the Romans.

Year 2 have learnt about the lives of significant individuals such as Neil Armstrong and Rosa Parks.  They hot seated Rosa Parks and asked her some questions about her life.

We have had lots of hands on learning linked to History!

Year 6

Learning History from real life sources - Mrs Rigby came to talk to Year 6 about what it was like to live during World War 2. She was born in 1919 and is 100 years old!

Year 4 have written poems using their historical knowledge about the Anglo-Saxons.  They have also completed timelines to show their chronological knowledge of this period of history.

Year 5 have learnt about how the Industrial Revolution affected Hyde.  They have also thought about how the Ancient Greeks have influenced our lives and made links to the Suffragettes.
