History

The history curriculum will help pupils to gain a sound understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. They will use a range of skills such as asking questions, thinking critically and weighing up evidence to make sense of topics including the Great Fire of London, ancient Egypt and significant individuals like Alfred the Great.

In order to develop historical skills and inquiring minds, at Cherbourg, the children are taught using a variety of approaches which will support their active learning. These include working with artefacts, investigating secondary sources (e.g. photographs and diary extracts) and visiting museums and places of local historical significance.
