History

At Lawn Primary and Nursery School, children study a wide range of local, British, European and World history in line with the expectations of the National Curriculum.  In addition to developing historical knowledge, we also plan for the development of skills which can be found in our Lawn Primary and Nursery School History Progression Map. 

We also believe in enriching the history curriculum through using a variety of resources as well as ensuring children gain experiences through visits to places, museums and other areas of interest within the local area.  We also invite outside visitors to run workshops or talk to the children about history topics.

At Lawn Primary and Nursery we have some inspirational and exciting history topics to investigate.

Year 1 have looked at family history and old and new toys.  They will also discover facts about Kings and Queens.  Later in the year the children will enjoy finding out about Space and Minibeasts and Plants.

In Year 2 Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole will be an interesting topic for the children to discover.  Other topics such as Explorers, Kenya and The Great Fire of London will also be looked at.

Year 3 will start the year by learning about the wonderful topic of Ancient Egypt.  Later Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages will be briefly looked at.

Year 4 will investigate the Romans and the Vikings with a Viking theme day planned.

Year 5 start the year learning about the Battle of Britain then travel back in time to the The Mayans and then forward again to the Space Race.

Year 6 have been learning about the Victorians and towards the end of the year the Ancient Greeks will be an interesting topic to experience.
