Learning about history at Beech House begins with a study of the lives of our children's grandparents and, in Year 2, continues with an investigation into the lives of people from the past or into significant historical events. Year 2 particularly enjoy finding out about the Great Fire of London. The children are encouraged to explore topics through discussion and questioning. They compare their own lives with those of people who lived at a different time. Visitors to Beech House fascinate the children with their tales of a childhood without computers or televisions. Stimulating resources including photographs, artefacts and interactive whiteboards bring history to life for our children and help to promote genuine interest and enthusiasm.
I like History because it gets my mind spinning around thinking.
