In History at St Mark’s we aim to inspire children to have a developing sense and understanding of the past. Children are encouraged to explore and appreciate how people lived their lives in the past and compare this to their own lives. The children will consider how significant historical events at local, national and world level continue to influence our society.
Children will develop enquiry skills, an understanding of chronology and cause and effect through a wide range of history learning including field trips, visiting historians and exploration of artefacts. The children will be encouraged to consider evidence and research using a range of quality sources including the use of I.C.T.
