History is an exciting and challenging subject at Marden Bridge. Pupils encounter a wide range of activities and materials, differentiated to extend all abilities.
Colourful new texts are used to develop an understanding of the past, looking at old sources of information and the latest ideas of modern historians.
Pupils have opportunities to visit local historic sites and museums, work interactively with CD-ROMs, handle artefacts, make models and see videos which highlight key historical issues. We discuss and debate the past and the present, thinking about the lives of the ordinary people and the most significant events.
Children are encouraged to develop their skills of reasoning, language and investigation through logical and creative writing.
