At Barford St Peter’s Primary School we pride ourselves on providing a broad and rich history curriculum which is designed to develop the children’s chronological understanding. We follow the National Curriculum which can be found in the link below. Our themed approach to learning, including well-chosen texts in English, ensures they have a wide coverage of the topic. It gives all our learners the opportunity to explore and demonstrate their historical knowledge through drama, art, writing, cooking, DT and other areas. Their new knowledge and understanding will then be measured before moving on to a new topic through a quiz or through creating their own fact sheets.
At Barford St. Peter’s we also go on many extra-curricular trips which help embed their topics. This may be at the start as a ‘hook’ to their new learning, or at the end where they can be enthused about their new knowledge! We also welcome visitors into the school to do workshops on the topics and have also participated in many online workshops.
Throughout the school year children are able to showcase their work and parents are invited in to see their wonderful achievements. We also like to give regular updates of their wonderful creations and visits on Twitter.
