Activities undertaken incorporate situations that stimulate curiosity, generate enthusiasm for knowledge, and give pupils experience of sharing and co-operating.
Pupils are encouraged to:
Work independently in pairs or small groups
Purposefully use ICT in research and presentation
Think for themselves
We aim to arouse pupils’ interest in the past by getting an understanding of their and their country’s, origins. We encourage an enquiring mind enhancing their thinking skills. Pupil’s will learn to recognise and make appropriate use of dates and vocabulary. They will consider the main events and people of the periods they are studying. With this they will learn to explain and analyse why events took place and why people acted the way they did.
