At Flanderwell we pride ourselves on creating an engaging and thought provoking History curriculum. We currently follow the Programmes of Study from the National Curriculum and teach through a topic based approach. We use Key Skills to assess progress and attainment. We ensure that throughout school History allows our children to compare and contrast, to examine how and why things have changed, to learn about historical characters and improve their research skills.


The children are provided with many opportunities to use both primary and secondary sources for historical enquiry. Where possible we also provide first hand opportunities and experiences from field work visits to bringing historical specialists in to deliver workshops.


                   Below are photos of some of the exciting history work going on in school now.
