At Britannia, children learn what past societies were like and how the past influences the present. They begin to understand how beliefs and cultures influenced people's actions. As they do this, children develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. Our children will develop their skills through researching different types of evidence and engaging in active discussion - skills that will prepare them for adult life.
History is taught through themes at Britannia and is brought to life through a range of practical experiences, visits and visitors. For example, we have battles on our own mount with children making weapons and dressing up; they experience life in a local air raid shelter, or are transported into the Victorian times as they play house maid or school child from the early 1900’s. We also have a range of interesting artefacts for each theme for the children explore and experience.
