Our Vision for History at St Edmund's is for the curriculum to:
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’.
In Nursery they have spent their week learning about WW1,Remembrance and the importance of the poppy. They have spent time getting creative making many styles of poppies.
In Reception they have spent their week learning about WW1,Remembrance and the importance of the poppy. They have spent time getting creative making many styles of poppies.
The Gunpowder Plot.
In Year 1-2 our topic has been The Gunpowder Plot. They have spent their time learning the story of The Gunpowder Plot and have sequence the events. They have also made wanted posters for Thomas Percy as he was the King's guard who helped with the plot.
In KS1 our topic has been Great Explorers. We have been looking at different explorers. KS1 was given a picture of an explorer and had to guess who he was. We learnt all about the places Iba Battuta travelled to and the problems he faced. We also have been learning about Christopher Columbus. We talked about how we would feel travelling at sea and finally seeing land after 36 days.
In history, Year 3/4 enjoyed studying The Romans and locating roman roads. Later in the unit, they had to research Roman Baths and write a persuasive leaflet explaining the different areas within the bathhouse.
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. One 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.
