In History, pupils learn through doing: lessons are always active and enquiry based with pupils asking/answering questions to elicit deeper understanding and to develop problem-solving skills. Lessons include activities such as research, role-play/hot-seating, debates, art and design and creative writing for example poetry and stories. Pupils work in groups to develop key group work skills, but will also have the chance to work independently. They develop a variety of cross-curricular skills including analysis/interpretation, questioning, speaking and writing for persuasion. Topics follow the National Curriculum and will be varied, relevant and exciting.
