There will be a huge history time-line along the corridor from Y1 to Y6. Displays will include classwork but also work children choose to do for homework, about a period of history they are interested in but maybe are not studying. Classes will be able to walk along the corridor, 'through' history and be immersed in the language and the past.
Each year group link below, when active, will list: the 'sticky facts' we want the children to remember; the key concepts that will be covered; and the outcome at the end of the topic.
