History is a subject greatly enjoyed by pupils at The Elms.
In Years 1 and 2 History is taught as a topic and many cross-curricular links are made with other subjects. In Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 History is a separate subject but some links are made with other areas of the curriculum.
At The Elms we aim to stimulate the children’s interest and understanding about the lives of people who lived in the past. We place an emphasis on examining historical artefacts and primary sources. Children are given the opportunity to visit sites of historical significance, dress up and participate in history discovery days and we also encourage visitors to come into school to talk about their experiences and the past.
