History

We teach History at St Anne’s because History builds an understanding of a shared past, with knowledge and understanding of events and people who shaped our world.  Everyone needs to know where they have come from, and why their lives are as they are.  History allows us to have an understanding of time and when significant events took place. A good knowledge of History gives you the understanding to put your own life in a broader context, and know what you might aspire to do in the future, by knowing what people have done in the past. At St Anne’s we value learning about local history and comparing this to national and international events and eras.

As historians at St Anne’s, it is our job to investigate sources, ask questions, research and learn.  The historical skills of enquiry and investigation, using sources of evidence and becoming aware of the authenticity and reliability of those sources, is an important life skill.  History enables children to learn how to generate effective and probing questions, and have the skills to seek and find reliable answers.
