History

At Whitefield we teach the history objectives from The National Curriculum through our Creative Curriculum.  

We teach history in an exciting way.  We encourage children to reflect upon evidence and question what we have learnt from the past to help our everyday lives. They engage in drama activities and we have many historical visitors to bring the past to life!

Year 2 went back in time to the Victorian era when they had a visit from Miss Preston, a very strict teacher! They wrote on slates and they used a special pencil. 
We use our English skills in History lessons. This might include recounts, diaries and letters. Look at some examples below.

Year 2 worked with Altru theatre group to bring The Great Fire of London to life.
Class 7 used role play to collect "evidence" connected to the fire in Pudding Lane, London in 1666. Do you think the baker was to blame?
