In the Foundation Stage, children learn about change and chronology through stories and role-play.
We adapt the topics depending on the children’s interests and development of skills.
Key Stage 1 pupils find out about the history of the home, comparing life 150 years ago with the present. They use artefacts and costumes to enhance learning and study famous people from the past, such as Florence Nightingale, Amy Johnson and Sir Robert Hitcham. The children also learn about the history of transport and of toys.
Topics covered in the Key Stage 2 current curriculum include the ancient civilizations of The Maya, Greece and Rome. British history incorporates studying the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age, and the Viking and Anglo-Saxon struggle for the Kingdom of England.
Local history involves discovering the role that Framlingham Castle played during the Tudor era. Visitors to the school (eg Theatre groups) and educational trips to local historical sites (eg Sutton Hoo) make the children’s learning more relevant and real.
