Curriculum Overview

History at Holy Trinity provides opportunities for pupils to explore the past for themselves, using a variety of sources to extract and use information. It allows for the interpretation, investigation and explanation of the past, which develops an understanding of people, events and how the past has shaped the present. 

During their time at Holy Trinity the children are introduced to the vast spread of History from Ancient Civilizations to Modern Times through which they are able to appreciate a sense of chronology. Topics include The Stone Age, The Seaside, Famous People, The Ancient Egyptians, The Romans, Benin and WW2. The curriculum encourages the pupils to develop investigative skills and make comparisons between and within different periods of history. Historical topics are linked to other areas of the curriculum including literacy, art and music.

The classroom curriculum is supported by trips to places of historical interest. Theatre groups also visit the School to help to bring topics alive with their stimulating and historically accurate entertainments.
