History at HCPS is a subject that captures the imagination of children and sparks an interest in where we have been so that we can better understand where we are going. Each year group has at least 2 history-centric topics that are covered over the year. They cover a wide variety of subjects starting with ‘The Stone Age' and up to the ‘Second World War’.
Most importantly, History should be fun and encourage children that seeing where we have come from is just as important as where we are going.
We do this through a variety of different methods:
Studying both primary and secondary sources
Engaging with different interpretations of the past
Using drama to bring history to life
