History at Great Moor is led by Miss Macintyre

In History at Great Moor Junior School we try to inspire pupils' curiosity to know more about the past by creating engaging lesson, listening to experts and visitors and going to trips to see things first hard. As well as historical subject knowledge we also aim to equip children with the right skills to become excellent historians. We aim to each our pupils how to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement.

Our children learn about local, British, European and international history and the historical order in which people lived and events happened. Throughout the school the children will study:

  • Ancient Egypt
  • Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age
  • Ancient Greece and their achievements
  • The Roman Empire and its impact on Britain
  • Britain’s Settlement by Anglo Saxons and Vikings
  • The history of a non-European society (Maya Civilisation)
  • A study of an aspect or theme in British history that extends pupils’ chronological knowledge beyond 1066
  • Local History

We learn about changes and about why some things stay the same. We look at history from different view-points including political, social and religious. They use different sources of information and historical evidence to investigate the past and learn that the past can be shown and explained in different ways. We also look at how the past as influenced our lives and identities today.
