History at Sacred Heart Catholic School

Throughout their time at Sacred Heart, children are encouraged to develop an awareness of the past, the ways in which it was different from the present day and the influence it has had on the modern world. All of the requirements of the National Curriculum are covered. Children use a range of information sources to aid enquiry and interpretation. Such sources include artefacts, pictures and photographs, written documents, the internet, educational visits and adults talking about their own pasts. From considering their own recent pasts through topics as varied as Ancient Egypt and the Iron Age and Bronze Age, the children are encouraged to develop an interesting and relevant perspective on history.
