In Year 5 and Year 6, history is taught by the lower school teachers and topics follow on chronologically up to Year 7 and 8. This allows students to have an overview from the Ancient World up to the Holocaust. The topics studied include:
· The Mayans
· The Greeks
· The Anglo-Saxons
· The British monarchy through time
· The Industrial Revolution
· WW1 and WW2
· The Holocaust
Our aim in history is to focus our enquiries around the second order concepts: change and continuity, similarity and difference, cause and consequence, significance and interpretations.
Students will complete an independent half-termly project, which aims to enthuse and engage them with their learning and is based on the topics that they are studying.
