Historical, Geographical and Social Understanding
At St.Peter’s we believe that engaging our children in questions about people and events in the past helps them understand the present and prepare for the future. By understanding people’s relationships with the physical and built environment they can form ideas about how to live. Our children learn and understand the importance of developing a future that is sustainable.
History in KS1 is taught through comparing now and in the past through a range of themes. Children are also taught about the lives of Famous People in the past and the impact they have had on today. History in KS2 includes studies of ancient civilizations and the history of Britain up to 1066. Themes and significant events from our locality are also explored.
