At the Rosary Catholic Primary School, we provide a rich and engaging History Curriculum. We encourage our children to investigate and report on the past through research and enquiry, as well as looking at a range of sources, which helps them to provide evidence of their findings.
Please see the History topics that will be covered over the year and also a list of websites that you can visit to research the topics further.
Please also encourage your children to look at other sources for information. For example: A visit to the Library to read books, newspapers and journals or visit to the local Museum or place of interest where they can engage with artefacts and other information from the past. Try to encourage your children to discuss what they have been learning in these topics as this will enable them to make further progress at home and in school.
Date for your diaries:
On Friday 6th July, the whole school will be participating in a creative 'History through the ages' day.
Nursery and Reception: This will be linked to a book with significant people from the past.
Year 1: What was life like when our grandparents were children?
Year 2: Who were our greatest explorers?
Year 3: What happened when the Romans came?
Year 4: Is it better to be a child now than in the past? (Linked to the previous topic - Victorians)
Year 5: Who were the Ancient Greeks?
Year 6: Would the Vikings do anything for money? Why do we remember the Maya? (This will be confirmed at a later date due to the SATS)
