About History

History at Merdon is taught through topics and is linked to other subjects areas such as Geography, music, dance, outdoor education and art.  This provides opportunities for a wider breadth of study.  During their journey through the school, pupils learn about the History of the country in which we live as well as in the wider world.  As part of their skills studies they learn to made comparisons, explore key features of the period, identify similarities and differences, continuity and change as well as exploring cause and consequence.  Thus building a picture of the past and continually making links.  Pupils are encouraged to pose questions whilst undertaking an enquiry led approach to their learning.
