PREP SCHOOL

History

 
History in the Prep department covers a wide variety of topics from the past underpinned by core skills required to enjoy the subject.
 
Topics are studied in chronological order so pupils can understand clearly the development of our world in time order and the concepts of continuity and change.
 
History is taught by subject specialist teachers for 3 periods per week throughout the Prep department.
 
  • Skills based learning which develops an understanding of sources of evidence and the ability to interrogate them effectively.
  • Pupils are encouraged to think for themselves and structure their own opinions.
  • Pupils experience a number of trips and workshop opportunities including Jorvik Viking Museum in York, Tudor weapons workshops and the Imperial War Museum North.
