Our History Learning

Take a look at some of our history learning!

The Anglo-Saxons


Year 3/4 thoroughly enjoyed their topic about the Anglo-Saxons. They learned that the Anglo-Saxons came to Britain after the Romans left. The children enjoyed learning about how Britain changed when the Anglo-Saxons were here and compared this to what Britain was like during the Roman times. The children learned lots! 

Howitt Day 2022

We enjoyed celebrating our school's history on Friday 18th February! We learned lots about our school, local area and William and Mary Howitt!


What makes a person a significant individual?


In Year 1 and 2, the children have been learning about three significant individuals: Edith Cavell, Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole. They have been answering the key question ‘What makes a person a significant individual?’ and have been learning about why these three people are significant in the history of healthcare. When learning about the famous nurse Florence Nightingale, the children found out about the changes she made to hospitals, many of which are still relevant today! Finally, the children compared all of these figures, discussing their similarities and differences and consolidating their understanding of what makes all of these individuals significant.

The Vikings


Year 5 and 6 loved learning about the Vikings! Take a look at some of their learning from their 'Viking' day! 

The Romans


Take a look at the Roman chariots that year 3/4 created as part of their learning about 'What did the Romans do for us?'

Remembrance Day:


EYFS showed their respect to all of the soldiers who, over the years, have helped to keep us all safe. They took part in different activities to help support them to think and reflect on why Remembrance Day is a special and significant day.
