History fires the children’s curiosity about the past. It develops their interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past. We teach children a sense of chronology and through this they develop a sense of identity and learn to value their own and other people’s cultures. We teach the children to investigate past events, understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today and develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving. We use visits, artefacts and guest speakers to bring the past alive.
