The Rosary history curriculum will provide children with the opportunity to investigate and interpret the past, build an overview of local and world history, understand chronology and communicate historically. It is important that children understand and value their own identity and heritage and understand the process of change. This includes their cultural roots, as citizens of Saltley, Birmingham and the UK as members of a global society.
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.
As part of our learning in History we explore the impact of significant people. During October we explore how people from different cultures and ethnic groups have made a significant impact in education, sport, medicine and politics.
In Year 2 we explore war and conflict as part of our learning about Remembrance Day thinking about what and why we remember. As a school we raise funds to support those who have fought so that we may have peace and freedom.
