HISTORY AT ST LUKE'S
Subject leader: Mr T Kennedy
"A generation which ignores history has no past and no future."
- Robert Heinlein
Key Stage 1:
Pupils should develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases
Key Stage 2:
Pupils should continue to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history, establishing clear narratives within and across the periods they study. They should note connections, contrasts and trends over time and develop the appropriate use of historical terms. They should regularly address and sometimes devise historically valid questions about change, cause, similarity and difference, and significance. They should construct informed responses that involve thoughtful selection and organisation of relevant historical information. They should understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources.
Our History Ambassadors
Our History Ambassadors at St Luke's have a real love for their subject. You'll often find them with their noses buried in a book. When we meet up we discuss what has been happening across the school in history.
Helping your child with History at home:
The best way to encourage young historians is through discussion. Talk about your family history and encourage your child to ask older relatives questions about the past. You can also use books, television and film to help your children explore the past.
