HISTORY

 

 Those who do not remember the past are destined to repeat it - George Santayana

At Wolston St Margaret’s Primary School, we aim to provide an inspiring history curriculum that engages all children and which fosters a passion to find out about events and people in the past that have shaped our world and which will continue to shape the future. The children will study history-based topics that will encourage them to develop sound exploratory skills and to make links while developing their understanding of the process of change.

HISTORY LEARNING LEAFLETS

Learning Leaflets include key vocabulary with definitions, dates and timelines, maps, significant individuals and other contextual knowledge along with key skills the children will need to demonstrate. We expect the majority of children to know the information on the learning leaflet by the end of the unit of work and be able to recall key detail.

The facts on the Learning Leaflet are the crystallised, necessary information about a topic but they don't represent the topic in its entirety and many children will have a far deeper understanding and be able to discuss and elaborate much further.
