History

The purpose of History at Wenlock is to ensure that our children develop a progressive and chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history in an exciting and challenging cross curricular approach. Through combining History with other areas of the curriculum the purpose is to help children to understand History from a range of sources and how our knowledge of the past is constructed. We strive to support children to question, compare, respond and make their own thoughtful connections to significant historical events information.

Autumn Term

Wenlock kicked off the year with a real focus on History across most of the year groups. Book looks and displays are showing that children are engaging in History chronologically through our new question approach and cross curricular topics. Please see the Lower and Upper Key Stage Brochures of coverage and planned assessment criteria for further detail.

Year 3

Stone Age – Are caveman real?

Year 3 has launched their topic through the English curriculum following the story of the Stone Age Boy, and linking this is historical timelines and artefacts. The children created some wonderful cave paintings and learnt that this is one way that we discovered about times in the past, way before historical records of writing and technology.
