History 2018 - 2019

Mr Carruthers

Welcome to the History page.  At St James', our historians develop a chronological knowledge of British, local and world history.  We try to devise and respond to narratives within and accross different time periods.  We also try to make the subject come alive, so we can "travel back in time" and make some real connections between the past, the present, and then...the future!

Below, you will find a huge collection of all our work.  Hopefully you will find various different areas of learning that may interest you.  All of our learning in the wider curriculum is taught in the afternoons, although we often cross over our learning from literacy and numeracy to help us with the wider curriculum.  We base each half-term on a different theme.  Although each theme is different, all of the subjects from the wider curriculum are included, at different times. The themes are exciting and varied; we always do something special in every topic which takes us far from school, to get real experience of the skills we have learned.
