At Seaton St Paul’s C of E Junior School, we love History! History teaching in our school focuses on enabling children to think as historians whilst engaging in a wide variety of experiences to enhance their learning. During our lessons, children have the opportunity to use a range of artefacts and sources, visit sites of historical significance and invite visitors into school. We believe it is important for children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; they also learn how to investigate past events and, by doing so, we develop important skills of enquiry, analysis, evaluation and interpretation.
We have had a lovely afternoon commemorating Remembrance day and 100 years of the Royal British Legion.
We have explored the many different ways that people choose to remember and honour the memory of the fallen.
Our children asked lots of fantastic questions and shared many mature responses during class discussions. Here are some pictures of our Remembrance activities across school.
