At Wells Primary we aim to develop a child’s interest in the past and increase their knowledge of different eras of history. We encourage and develop the appropriate vocabulary associated with the passing of time. Through interesting lessons on various eras, we aim to help children understand the present by having an understanding of its historical origins. We give our pupils the opportunity to recognise that there are reasons why people acted as they did. We help children understand their own cultural roots and shared inheritance of our multicultural society. Each of our history lessons teaches a variety of skills, developing our pupils' ability to question, analyse, interpret and communicate.
To enrich our study of history, we regularly arrange school trips to places of interest connected to the topic being studied and also invite experts into school to share their knowledge.
