At Henley Green Primary we have many Topics that have a specific History focus. The Topics form part of our whole school Curriculum map. Have a look below to see what your child is learning about History.
Key Stage 1
Year 1 have explored lots of different toys from the past and learnt about how they were made. They had a visit from the Herbert Gallery to show them real artefacts which they were able to handle.
Year 2 enjoy being Historians and finding out all about The Great Fire of London. To enhance their learning, they had a visit from the local fire brigade. They saw how a real fire was put out and how to be safe if they ever encountered a fire.
Key Stage 2
Year 3 have been learning about prehistory, Stone Age to the Iron Age and the Celts. They had a Stone Age - Iron Age workshop to reinforce their learning. They learnt to be archaeologists and unearthed where a round house would have been and made a replica piece of iron age pottery. To end their learning about the Celts (the people living in Britain during the Iron Age) two tribes had a battle...it was fierce!
Year 4 have been learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings. A display of beautiful Saxon jewellery was made.
Year 5 have been busy historians finding out about World War 2 - Coventry and the Blitz. The children have enjoyed a visit to Winchcombe Railway in the Cotswolds where they got to experience a day as a WW2 evacuee.
Year 6 have been learning all about the Tudors. They have been using their history skills to explore different sources to find out all about the Tudor era. They had a special visitor via Zoom...Henry VIII.
