History

What do our children think about History? 

"I like history. It's fun learning about the past and why things happened. It means I will understand the world when I'm older."

"If we learn about what happened in the Blitz, we can try and story wars in the future."

"I like learning when people have done things differently and also about the similarities to now." 

"History is from the past but it helps us now." 

"We learnt how people didn't let their differences stop them. We should all be treated equally. It's what is inside that counts."

"I really enjoyed the Black History workshop and learnt so much. I realised there is so much more to Black History than I knew. We learn to never give up and to persevere. Make your dreams come true." 

"I really enjoyed the African singing and dancing because I haven't done that before."
