History

History at Meynell is taught through our adapted Learning Challenges. This is a cross-curricular, topic based and imaginative curriculum which builds on pupils’ skills and knowledge as they move through the school. Subjects are creatively linked and teachers aim to present exciting activities which fire enthusiasm, linking learning to the needs and interests of pupils as much as possible. Over the last 4 years of using this curriculum we have adapted it to make it suit our individual needs as a school and regularly reviewed it to ensure our children receive the most engaging learning to ensure maximum impact.

It has been very useful to work with our secondary school colleagues to ensure Y5/6 history sends our children up with all the right skills.
