History in Primary Schools

Pupils are expected to develop an awareness of the past and how it differs from the present. They learn about changes in their own lives and those of their family, as well as about people living long ago. We use a range of resources to inspire pupils including: artefacts, photographs, books and computing programmes.

As part of their history work the children at Banks Road are encouraged to visit places of interest such as Chester, Liverpool Museum and Speke Hall.

We are continuing to develop our History curriculum to make it as exciting as it can be. Remember to keep visiting our web page to see what your child is up to in History this year!

All our history topics follow the same structure, making sure that children cover all of the essential skills and knowledge in history that they need!
