Manland pupils enjoy developing a good knowledge of historical topics, acquiring a detailed understanding of the past.  They learn to ask questions, research evidence, draw conclusions and communicate their findings.

History at our school aims to:-

  • Inspire pupils’ curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world
  • Encourage thinking about how the past influences the present
  • Support students to develop a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people
  • Encourage a sense of identity and an increased understanding of pupils’ own position in their own community and the world
  • Develop a range of skills and abilities – particularly those related to finding out about the past, explaining what happened and what people then and now think about what happened

The Year 6 children enjoyed their World War 2 day.  They investigated artefacts during that period and drew conclusions about life during that time.

The Year 2 children enjoyed learning about the Great Fire of London, researching and investigating evidence to draw conclusions about this dramatic event.

Year 5 children visited the British Schools Museum in Hitchin.  Here, they played the role of Victorian children and learned about life during this era.
