At Holy Trinity, we aim for a high quality history curriculum which inspires pupils' curiosity and fascination about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We want children to enjoy and love learning about history by gaining this knowledge and skills, not just through experiences in the classroom, but also with the use of fieldwork and educational visits.
Here are some examples of History in our school:
Class 3 had the most amazing day investigating the Prehistoric Age! They looked at the Stone, Iron and Bronze Age. They had a very special visitor who brought in many different artefacts to show them!
Class 2 loved sharing their History learning with their peers and parents in a Friday assembly. They have been learning about monarchs.
