History @ Denbigh CPS

Subject Lead: Miss Baird

At Denbigh, History is taught through a topic so that our children get to learn about different periods in history each year, ranging from Ancient Greece and Rome to Vikings and World War II. We aim to inspire pupil’s curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. We make every effort to develop meaningful links between subjects to give our pupils a cross curricular context. Through our link with North Tyneside’s library service, we are able to immerse the children in their topics by using books and real artefacts in our classrooms. We create engaging lessons using drama and to reinforce their learning, we employ theatre groups and visitors to bring the subject alive.

Year 6 had the most AMAZING Heritage day! We learnt all about the history of the house featured in the BBC TV series ‘A House Through Time’ and decided to pay the house a visit. We couldn’t believe it when we arrived and the owner of the house (Damian) was home and asked if we would like to go inside and see it for real! We are so lucky! We finished the day by visiting The Discovery Museum and taking a walking tour through the ages in our area. #dcpslotc #dcpslions #dcpstigers #dcpshistory ... See MoreSee Less

That is amazing!

The dinos loved finding out about the history of their local area. They explored what Wallsend looked like between 100 and 50 years ago, including the many changes which has taken place on the high street. They loved the fact that trams and horses were used as the main form of transport in 1913. They then took to the shops, looking at how supermarkets have taken over the high street and how once upon a time all our food was bought in individual shops on the high street. They had a go at working out what they would have bought from each shop, ranging from a butchers to a bakers and a fishmongers. They rounded the day off by listening to Jim who used to be a coal miner. He told them all about life down the mines. They are all happy that life isn’t on the cards for them. Some great research done today and a lot of history learned.

Dragons enjoying Heritage Day today. We loved learning all about what Wallsend was like in the past. Then we enjoyed chatting with our V.I.P Grandparents, asking some very good questions. Then we looked at how shops and the way we shop has changed over time. What a great week we’ve had! #dcpsdragons #dcpshistory #dcpsheritageday ... See MoreSee Less

We also had sports week which was super fun.

Year 2 loved chatting with the grandparents this morning and finding out how life has changed at school, at home, with toys and with what people did in their spare time. We learned that life was very different to what we know.
