At Laira Green, History is taught as part of a broad and balanced curriculum, in accordance with the Key Stages referred to in the National Curriculum for England and Wales. We seek to provide high-quality history education that will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain's past and that of the wider world. We use historical evidence to awaken children's curiosity, in turn generating quality discussions, fact finding and debates.
Through their breadth and depth of study, children will understand the complexities of people's lives; the process of change; the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups as well as their own identities.
History is led by Mrs Barker who will be updating this page throughout the year with examples of the children's work so please check back regularly to see what we've been learning.
Below is a brief overview of the wonderful history that each year group will be learning during Autumn 2018.
