History Curriculum

Mercenfeld Primary School are currently on an exciting journey with developing their History Curriculum! The school has designed a scheme ensuring the national curriculum aims are achieved whilst at the same time personalising learning to our children. Every class will have two heavily History based knowledge rich projects each year meaning lots of historic skills and knowledge are being taught to our children.

Enrichment Activities

Throughout the year children will have the opportunity to participate in History days developing a love for the subject. Just a few examples of these are an Ancient Greek Day (Year 5), An Earnest Shackleton expedition (Year 6) and many school trip to local historic museums. Optional homework is also sent home that can be completed as family projects.
