Marlow Church of England Infant School

History

At Marlow Church of England Infant School, we aim to inspire children’s learning by studying History in a hands-on way.

Incorporating educational visits to museums and historical buildings and by inviting museum specialists and older family members in to discuss events and items from the past. The aim is to brings the children’s view of History to life.

Our varied and exciting topics inspire learning and offer children a chance to embed key historical knowledge and skills in a stimulating way.

We encourage the children to learn through inspiring opportunities to do their own research and to lead their own learning.

Through memorable History topics, the children begin to understand the past and start to gain a wider perspective of the chronological order of events, starting with ordering recent events on a timeline and looking back into the past.

We encourage children to discuss their role as future citizens and the impact Rights have on their lives.

We prepare the children to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments and develop perspective and judgements encouraging them to reflect on past events and how they have shaped the world.

All of the skills learnt through the experiential topic areas such as enrichening vocabulary, developing enquiry skills and learning how to ask questions support our children as they progress through their wider learning journey at Marlow Church of England Infant school.
