Whilst history is a foundation subject in the National Curriculum, it is a subject whose importance and benefit to children cannot be overstated. History has the ability to create a bridge between today’s world and the myriad fascinating worlds of the past, which automatically provokes questions from pupils.


Tempered and channelled correctly, its study can turn this naturally occurring curiosity into the development of tools every pupil needs in order to be able to express their thoughts and positively engage with the world around them. Examples of such tools include simple comparison and identification at one end, to critical engagement, evaluation and keen perception at the other.

Meet the Time Travellers

The Time Travellers group are children who help to promote History in the school and find ways how artefacts and sources can make the subject come alive.
