At Britannia, our 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, our pupils develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. Our aim is to develop our children's 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 our curriculum follows a clear progression of knowledge and historical skills thorough our Curriculum Concepts. Learning 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 1900s. We also have a range of interesting artefacts for the children explore and experience.
