History

During Non-Fiction Studies children learn how to write non-fiction texts through the study of humanities units in history, geography and religious education. This encourages children to extend their writing skills beyond English lessons to throughout the curriculum.

 

The Teaching of History

History units are taught chronologically and follow two main strands - British history and history of the ancient world.

British History Units

  • Prehistoric Britain (Stone Age to Iron Age)
  • Romans in Britain
  • The Invaders (Saxons, Vikings and Normans)

Ancient History Units

  • Ancient Egypt
  • Ancient Greece
  • Early Islamic Civilisation

 

Children also learn about local history through studying the architecture of London and linking this to key historical events since 1066. Children also study in depth the causes and events of World War II.
