At Angel Road Infant and Nursery School, we understand the importance of history as a tool to make sense of the world we live in today, by understanding our past we have a greater understanding of our present.
At Angel Road Infant and Nursery School, our aim is to ignite our children’s curiosity about the past by asking and answering questions about historical events and figures and suggesting reasons why they are significant. Children begin to think like Historians to understand some changes in history and suggest possible reasons for them. They identify similarities and differences between different time periods and identify different ways the past is represented by inferring from a range of historical sources.
We understand the importance of not only investigating and interpreting the past but also showing how past actions, people and events have shaped our present times, that is why we have the theme of significance running through our topics which is built on and developed further at Angel Road Junior School.
