Children without the knowledge of their past history and culture is like a tree without roots.
Here at Gisburn Road School our aim is:
• To develop children’s historical knowledge and to inspire an interest in the past.
• To help children develop enquiry skills by asking questions about the past and using a range of sources and looking at how the past is represented in different ways.
• To find out about people and events in the past and identify reasons for what happened.
• To bring History to life through creative experiences
Year 2 children imagined that they were soldiers in the First World War. They wrote letters home describing the conditions.
