History

At Newchurch Primary School we believe that teaching and learning in History is important as history is all around us. The study of history ignites children’s curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. Through finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time, children understand how the past influences the present. History enables children to develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. What they learn through history can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values. At Newchurch Primary our intent, when teaching history, is to stimulate the children’s curiosity in order for them to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding.

 

The history provision is enriched through educational visits, visitors and the links with Warrington Museum.  Where the children gain hands on experiences of what life in the past was like.
