History

The intent for History is for all our children to understand the past and how history shapes their future. The implication of this will mean our children can gain an understanding of the complexity of people’s lives and the process of change. The impact of this will enable the children to recognise their own identity and to understand the challenges they may face in their time.

Author Michael Thame has shared this information (aimed at Year 5 & 6)

‘Dear Sir or Madam,
 
Given these difficult times for parents trying to occupy their children during lockdown, I have decided to read my novels and upload them to Youtube. The serialisation starts on Monday 30th March at 12 noon BST. 
 
I have gone into a number of schools reading these books because they mirror the World War Two aspect of the National Curriculum. They are are aimed at the 8-12 range and are perfect for Years 5 and 6.
 
There is no charge whatsoever – I am just looking to do my bit to help right now. I thought this might be one way of doing that. 
 
Here’s the link to my introductory video, or I can be found by searching ‘the Conyers Street Mysteries’ on Youtube.

Best,
