History

At Rothwell St. Mary’s we hope to inspire the historian inside every child through challenging, engaging and practical learning. We hope that children will not only view history as looking back to past events, but to use their knowledge to help them understand the world today and their place in it.
We wish to bring history alive for children through trips and “lived experiences”, giving children access to real historical artefacts in their classrooms. History education at Rothwell St. Mary’s will give the children valuable life skills to identify, interpret and scrutinise information, and come to better understand who we are through the study of local, modern and ancient history.

Where will you find evidence of our pupil’s work for each curriculum area?

In most classes, work can be found in pupil’s books for the subject. In our older classes in Key Stage 2, some evidence of learning can be found on Chrome Books. Pupils in Years 3-6 are fortunate enough to have their own Chrome Books.
