History @ Denbigh CPS

Subject Lead: Mrs Robinson

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.

The children in Reception are loving learning about castles and knights. They couldn’t wait to get dressed up and play in character! And we read a fantastic book called ‘Shhh!’ Which was all about a giant living in a castle. It had lots of flaps to lift to see what was happening and some of the boys and girls decided to make their own books using post it notes. #dcpseyfs #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpshistory ...

We began our new topic this week ‘Castles, Knights and Dragons’ and the children were very excited to explore what castles look like and their purpose. They were quick to create their own castles from junk modelling, wooden blocks and Lego. Some children even painted their coat of arms on to bread and made up their own ‘castle inspired’ story using the small world resources. #dcpsladybird #dcpsbutterfly #dcpsEYFS #dcpshistory ...
