History at TJS!
We believe that history is one of the subjects that provides a valuable platform to develop key skills linked to our core values. Children are encouraged to develop the ability to think, reflect, debate, discuss and evaluate the past through formulating and refining questions and lines of enquiry. History is not just about learning about the past but understanding what we have learnt from history. We aim to develop an enthusiastic engagement in learning, which develops a sense of curiosity about the past and understanding of how and why people interpret the past in different ways. The different curriculum areas are enhanced through local visits and also inviting visitors into school.
