History


Intent:

At Burnham on Crouch Primary School we strongly believe that children should feel connected to the world that they live in. We aim to inspire our children with a sense of curiosity and fascination about the past in Britain and the wider world. By finding out about how and why the world, our country, culture and local community have developed over time, children understand how the past influences the present. Through the teaching of history children develop a context for their growing sense of identity and a chronological framework for their knowledge of significant events and people. What they learn through history can influence their decisions about personal choices, attitudes and values. The history topics have been carefully chosen to reflect the demands of the National Curriculum. Through each two week block and key stage children build upon their prior knowledge, develop their curiosity and embed essential knowledge into their long-term memory.ย

STEM part 2: Year 5 took part in our first STEM Enrichment session on 13th September. The theme of the day was: Witches and Wizards. The children attended Potions class during the morning where they carried out a range of experiments and then made ice cream and lemonade. Care of Magical Creatures was next , where the children designed,  using a CAD programme, and made bird perches for Hedwig using woodwork skills. 
Here are some comments from the children:
โ€œI enjoyed it so much.โ€ Mia 
 โ€œIt was so funโ€ Jack 
โ€œI loved it!โ€ Ava 
โ€œIt was really exciting.โ€ Sienna 
โ€œI had a truly wonderful time.โ€ Daisy 
โ€œ I want to be an engineer.โ€ Rosa 
โ€œI love STEM!โ€ #stemeducation #psqm
