What our pupils say...
Felix - Year 1
"I enjoy history, I have been learning about toys from the past."
Raife - Year 4
"All history lessons are fun, I have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons, settlements and burials."

"I enjoy history. I am learning about the Victorians, I like looking at the differences between then and now."
Here at St Anne's we strive to give pupils opportunities in their learning to develop essential knowledge and learn about things that are outside their daily experience. In history we aim to do this through experiences that allow the children to experience life in the past and interact with artefacts to gain an appreciation of how things were, how they have changed and how developments across history influence and inform our lives today.
Recently, Year 1 have explored archeology, Year 2 visited a Tudor house to learn more about how they were built and how this impacted on the spread of the Great Fire of London. Year 3 were transported back to the stone age and learnt of the daily struggles people had to keep warm and dry. Year 4 visited the Ancient High house to learn more about what life was like in Tudor times. Year 5 visited the Black Country museum to learn about life in Victorian times and Year 6 were able to use their experiences from there residential experience to help them connect with children who were evacuated during WWII.
