Handcross Primary


Stoneage artefacts = Autumn 2022



We provide a high-quality history education which gives children a coherent knowledge and understanding of the past in Britain and the wider world and inspires their curiosity to know more about the past. Children will gain knowledge of specific events and periods in time as well as developing their sense of chronology and historical enquiry skills through each carefully planned unit of work. In their history lessons, children have the opportunity to use a range of historical sources including artefacts, photos, documents and texts which enable them to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. We regularly visit places of historical interest to enrich their understanding of a period or event in history, including those in our immediate locality.
