Year 6 History

The study of History in the Middle School aims to achieve two main objectives; firstly to give students the ability to understand the human experience through time at a local, national and international level in order to explain why the modern world is as it is. Secondly to provide its students with important skills such as source analysis, thinking critically and writing descriptively; skills which can be used at a cross curricular level.
