History

Access our History Skills Progression chart HERE

At Wilby Primary School we aim to develop a child’s interest in the past and increase their knowledge of different eras of history.  We encourage and develop the appropriate vocabulary associated with the passing of time.  Through interesting lessons on various eras, we aim to help children understand the present by having an understanding of its historical origins. We give our pupils the opportunity to recognise that there are reasons why people acted as they did and help them to understand their own cultural roots and shared inheritance of our multicultural society.  Our history lessons teach a variety of skills, developing our pupils' ability to question, analyse, interpret and communicate.  

To enrich our study of history, we regularly arrange school trips to places of interest connected to the topic being studied and also invite experts into school to share their knowledge. We also find that theme days, when the children dress up and immerse themselves in the activities of a different period in time, really help to bring history alive.
