In Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 we aim to give the children an introduction to
life in times past. Within our topic work we experience living history, by means
of artefacts, photographs, visits to places of historical interest and visits from
local residents to find out about topics and famous people.
Key Stage 2 builds on this foundation, looking at specific periods and cultures
in history. Archaeological and historical evidence is used to support this work,
both in the classroom and on visits to museums and sites, with children
making their own deductions about how people used to live. We explore the
influence of the Romans, Anglo Saxons and Vikings on Britain as well as
 the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians.
