In our History lessons, we aim for pupils to gain an understanding of Britain’s past, as well as the wider world. Through engaging and exciting lessons, we aim to inspire children’s curiosity.
Year 6 have been studying World War II and were lucky enough to have some WWII enthusiasts (a pupil's grandparents and their friend) bring in a Jeep and an International Half Track (a tank/armoured soldier carrier). They thoroughly enjoyed learning about the vehicles and the equipment the soldiers would have carried.
Year 5 have been learning about The Victorians and had a fully immersive experience of going into a Victorian school. They learned about the 3 R's, played playground games, completed a timeline activity and even sung hymns and the National Anthem! Plus, they had a special guest visitor who is taught them how to plait and gave us information about the plait factories in Luton in the Victorian Times.
Year 6 spent a half term learning all about Ancient Greece. One part of this topic was learning about the religious beliefs of the Ancient Greeks. The children focused on the Gods the Greeks worshipped and create a fact page all about one of the Gods. Below are some examples of the fact pages they created and some artwork they completed.
Year 2 have been learning all about the Gunpowder Plot. They have learnt about some of the key figures involved and also why there was a plot to kill King James I. They completed some artwork linked to this, as well as some Tudor houses (which links nicely to their next focus - The Great Fire of London!)
The Great Fire of London...in Bramingham!
Year 2 enjoyed a workshop all about the Great Fire of London - they learnt so much in this interactive session!
They also had their own Great Fire of Bramingham to see how quickly fire can spread when houses are not built with a suitable material.
