History at Seaton St. Paul's C of E Junior School
At Seaton St Paul’s C of E Junior School, we love History! Our History curriculum and teaching focuses on enabling our children to think as historians, whilst participating in a wide variety of experiences to enhance their learning. This allows our children to learn about History from others and outside the four walls of the classroom! Examples of this include visits to museums and experts visiting our school. During our History lessons, we want our children to: have the opportunity to access a range of artefacts and sources, develop their own chronological timeline of History and be able to understand the cause and consequences of significant events in the past. We believe it is important for our children to understand the relevance of History and how events in the past continue to influence our lives today. This is achieved by investigating past events, whilst developing important skills of enquiry, analysis, evaluation and interpretation. Local History is also an important aspect of our History curriculum at Seaton St Paul’s as it is important to us that our children have an understanding of the key historical events that have shaped our local area.
