“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future”
Theodore Roosevelt

 

history1History at Edward Worlledge is taught in units of work that follow the National Curriculum, wherever possible cross curricular links are fostered, allowing pupils to learn in a cohesive manner. A sense of chronology is developed as pupils move throughout the school. Pupils in Year 3 currently study prehistory investigating the Stone Age to Bronze Age and by upper key stage 2 pupils begin to investigate cross phase units of work such as “War” in Year 6.

 

history2Our aim at Edward Worlledge is to make History come alive, to allow our pupils to tell the stories of the past and to imagine what it would be like to walk in the footsteps of the people of the past, whether it be a Roman Emperor or a soldier in a World War One trench.
Our local heritage is important to us, we are a Heritage School and have demonstrated our commitment to preserving our local history. Year 5 research the history our school, using a wide range of sources including photographs, newspaper reports and oral evidence collected from interviewing former pupils. They also visit local archives to investigate the history of Edward Worlledge. History provides pupils with a sense of identity, value and culture. It enables pupils to ask questions, to find solutions and to make decisions and judgements based on the evidence that they examine. These are important skills for life.

 

history3Our school was lucky enough to be chosen to attend the “Stories of the Sea” project run by the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth in conjunction with the Royal Maritime Museum, Grenwich, London. Pupils have attended workshops in Year 3, 4 & 5 where they have met pirates and explorers and have been inspired to write their own poems and stories of the sea. A group of pupils were also able to visit the Maritime Museum London as a reward for their hard work and commitment to the project.
All year groups aim to make History engaging. Year groups frequently participate in History days where they are encouraged to dress in role as an Egyptian or a Roman. Pupils will meet characters from the era they are learning about, have opportunities to handle and make objects, play games, complete calculations, solve challenges and participate in role play. Pupils also visit the local museums to undertake workshops and to examine artefacts from the past. Year 6 recently enjoyed a visit to the Imperial War Museum in London to see the First World War exhibition and galleries.
