“We are not makers of History. We are made by History.” – Martin Luther King, Jr
Through each year in Mersey Park our children will build up their skills in History through a range of fun and exciting topics. Through these topics our children will develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history. They begin by making simple comparisons with the past and the present, using objects they will recognise like ‘old and new toys’. They quickly move onto understanding how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources and that different versions of the past may exist. This then allows them to form their own judgements and discuss possible reasons for events of the past.
