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 took their learning outside today to begin their World War topic. They were challenged to build an air-raid shelter using a range of clues thinking about the materials, the positioning and the size. They even made a set of directions using a compass to help people find their way to the nearest shelter from the school gates. Once they were complete, the rest of the year group, who had been frantically researching so that they were able to fairly judge, decided on a winner. They were able to explain their reasoning for the winning team thoroughly using evidence from their research. Miss Stephenson #dcpstiger #dcpslion #dcpsLOTC #dcpsdt #dcpshistory #dcpsmaths ...
