Throughout St Anne's, children have the opportunity to develop their historical understanding and skill set through studying a broad range of topics. We focus on:

- Chronological understanding

- Developing both range and depth of historical knowledge

- Interpretation of history

- Historical enquiry

In lessons, children do a variety of activities to ensure that a passion for History is developed. We analyse and recreate sources, create timelines, role play, interview, compare time periods, investigate and immerse ourselves in the past.

Autumn 1

The knowledge organisers below outline what we expect the children to know by the end of the unit. Please ask them all about what we have been learning!

Year 3 learning about the chronology of the Stone Age. Did you know that if you use a toilet roll with 1000 sheets to show human habitation in Britain over the past 1,000,000 years, 2 sheets would take us back to the birth of Jesus and 995 sheets would represent the Stone age?! 

The children have also become archaeologists by digging for artefacts to learn about the past.
