If we are to begin to understand our place in the world, we must not only study the present but look to our past.
History at Cranborne takes a journey through local, British and world history helping children to understand what has gone before, and what the future may hold.
KS2 starts by looking at our local and family history. As children see the past stretching out behind them, they will then question where the future may take them. Throughout KS2, children then continue to journey through the past, visiting Ancient Greece, the Vikings and even the Aztecs.
In KS3, children will look at a range of topics that cover Britain’s history to discover how the past has influenced their lives today. Children are encouraged to develop questions about the past and look at why change happens. As their enquiry skills develop, children start to develop critical thinking and start to share their own opinions on our past.
