Children's learning experiences are enhanced through the many trips and visits such as 'The Tower of London', 'Layer Marney Tower' and from whole school workshops and History character dress-up days.
In Year 1 and Year 2 the focus is on becoming historians, using historical terms, phrases and vocabulary to describe people and events from the past. Their chronological understanding is enhanced through exploration into changes within living memory, as well as significant events beyond living memory (for example: the Great Fire of London).
