Historians at All Saints’ investigate and interpret the past to influence the future.
Mrs Mitchell leads history at All Saints'.
At All Saints', we want all of our pupils to have an understanding of the past and how history will shape their future. We believe that high quality history lessons encourage critical thinking, develop chronological understanding and allow children to explore like detectives and work like historians! Children are given the opportunity to study a variety of primary and secondary sources, make predictions, build their historical knowledge and develop key history skills.
‘Big questions’ provide children with an enquiry-led approach to their learning, leading to them developing their own questions to investigate.
Think of the past, of the time long ago;
ask your parents to tell you what happened,
ask the old people to tell of the past.
