History is a tool of learning and communication looking at people and their progress over different periods of time. It plays a key part in our understanding of the development of the modern world. The skills pupils develop through the study of history are applicable to everyday life.
Our aims in history teaching reflect the aims of Greneway in that they:
Our current programme of work in history is as follows:
The History programme of study includes a range of interactive lessons including re-enactment days for all year groups enabling history to be in the present at Greneway. The schemes of work in place support and link well with the school literacy targets encouraging pupils to demonstrate their understanding in a range of imaginative ways.
Greneway’s developments in technology have also enhanced the history curriculum with the use of iPad’s, google chrome books and the smart response system to help to engage pupils and to support the assessment of their learning.
To aid the development of the subject all staff delivering lessons meet regularly to review and enhance the teaching resources and to discuss future plans. Pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential through the provision of varied opportunities including independent projects where pupils can select events and individuals that they have a particular interest in to study in more depth.
