Looking into the past is exciting, draws questions, enables curiosity, develops empathy.  We travel back through time at Stobhillgate, making links to our lives today and noticing how the decisions of those who were here before us have influenced the world as we know it.   Our curriculum has been carefully designed to take the pupils on a historical journey, which builds on the children’s prior knowledge and understanding. This allows the contexts explored to be age appropriate and relevant to where we live and always carefully placed as part of a jigsaw timeline of the past.  Our budding historians will explore these exciting times through practical and written tasks in every lesson, every week.
