At Great Whelnetham C of E Primary we aim to stimulate our children’s interest about the past, and therefore develop an understanding of the present in terms of what has gone before.

Our children will study a range of significant people, periods and events that occurred in British and international history. These include: Stone Age to Iron Age, the Roman Empire, Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greeks and significant events of national importance including WW2.

Throughout each key stage the learning will always use the children as a starting point and links and comparisons to our lives, in the present day, will be explored.
