History 2020 - 2021

Mr Carruthers

  

Welcome to the History page.  Here at St James’, we aim to teach history in a progressive and exciting manner to help all of our historians develop a love of history. We help our historians create connections to show how previous learning/topics are linked; how places and peoples in the world are linked; and also how history can be seen throughout all subjects and in a cross-curricular way.  Our historians learn about chronology so they can place historical events in context and create even further connections and build upon previous learning.  Our historians become confident communicators and use correct historical vocabulary, and accurate historical research techniques.   In History, it is important to become critical thinkers so we encourage learners to question historical evidence and be aware of bias, propaganda, and discerning of primary and secondary evidence filters.  All of this is taught using multi-modal methods to bring the learning alive and to engage all learners.  We use outdoor learning and high-quality fieldwork/research skills, enrichment visits, Wow Days, local guest speakers, school-wide campaigns, and we share our work globally.
