At Tregoze Primary School, history forms an integral part of the curriculum. We believe that it inspires children’s curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions, and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and the wider world. Studying history gives children an introduction to the major events which have shaped Britain and provides them with a better understanding of historical global relations. Because of this, we teach history discretely as well as incorporating it within other curriculum areas, such as English, art, and music.
At Tregoze Primary School, children learn history in various ways:
- Using different sources — both primary and secondary — to understand the past.
- Holding ‘history days’ which provide children with hands-on experiences and a link to what is being taught.
- Visiting museums or historic houses.
- Through reading fiction, non-fiction, and picture books.
