Through National Curriculum History, the school aims:
• to help children gain a feeling about the thoughts and actions of people in the past based on a method of enquiry which uses historical evidence (objects, pictures, documents)
• to develop a sense of the passage of time
• to develop an historical imagination
• to teach ways of presenting in written, illustrated, oral and dramatic
forms the children's understanding of history.
Use is made of the local environment as much as possible. The children are fortunate to live in an area with rich historical associations, e.g. Roman Bath, Medieval Bristol, Wick Court, Battle of Lansdown.
