History

Our Vision for History at  St Edmund's is for the curriculum to:

  1. Provide all children with the opportunity to make progress and reach their full academic potential.
  2. To develop children’s knowledge and understanding of significant events and people in History with a focus on the North West.
  3. To increase all children’s knowledge of Britain’s past and the wider world, taking into account our local area, using these events to make informed choices in their own lives and make valuable contributions to their wider community.
  4. To develop the children’s curiosity and enquiry skills whilst building a shared vocabulary.

To create learning activities which engage children and develop an enquiring and questioning mind to prepare the children to access learning and be ‘job ready’.

Lower Key Stage Two

Upper Key Stage Two  

In history, Year 6 started their Vikings topic with imagining they were Anglo-Saxon settlers, looking out at oncoming Viking invaders. They had to remember key facts about what they could see and learn about the Viking Longships, and report this back to their fellow villagers. ‚ÄčOne activity was to build their own Viking building. Lots of very impressive houses were constructed!

For homework lots of children enjoyed baking viking inspired recipes, such as bread, cookies and flapjack. They shared their recipes before taste testing with the class.
