Love to Learn, Together with the Lord
At All Saints' we believe that a high-quality history education will help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching should equip pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time
A love of history can begin in lots of different ways, one is to read fiction based on historical events. This allows children to find an area of history that interests them and fosters a love for the past. Here are a few books that have been suggested to do just that.

This year every class has had the opportunity to have a look at artefacts from the period of history they are studying. The children love this and use their inference skills to try and decide what each artefact was made from, what it was and how it was used.
