History at Tiptoe

 

Statement Intent – History

Our aim at Tiptoe Primary is to allow pupils to explore history through an enquiry based curriculum. We want to fire pupils’ curiosity about the past in Britain and the wider world. We believe that asking questions about the past is central to a good history curriculum. In History pupils are encouraged to question their understanding of the past allowing them to enjoy all that History has to offer. If pupils are able to examine the past, children are more likely to ask questions about the present day. We want to equip children with the tools to think like historians, examining past societies, studying influences and actions of individuals and their impact on our current society. To ensure the children will have a good depth of knowledge, we will give pupils opportunities to examine evidence weighing up and discussing/ arguing their point of view to make their own conclusions. Children will study a broad carefully planned curriculum which will enable children at their relevant key stage to develop their understanding of chronology.

Through the use of artefact and exciting trips, pupils gain an in-depth understanding of significant events in British history as well as appreciating how things change over time. Without History, there would be no future!

 Tiptoe History Morning May 2021!

We wanted as a school to celebrate people from the past who have worked in medicine and made a significant contribution to our lives today. 

Each class studied a famous person in medicine and used their questioning skills and independent research to find out as many facts  as they could about their person. We all recorded what we had learnt in different ways including fact cards, cartoons, posters, paintings, drama, hot seating, and writing biographies. We learnt about the lives of Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole, Marie Curie, Joseph Lister, Edward Jennings and Dorothy Hodgkin. 

We also came to school dressed up as a doctor, nurse or scientist!
