and at our other Trust Schools

Intent

Our History incorporates the expectations of the National Curriculum and has been extended to explore modern day historical periods to enable the children to develop their understanding of the shaping of modern-day Manchester and the UK.

EYFS 

In EYFS, we talk about how we were babies in the past and now we are children who will grow into adults. We use our own baby pictures to show our very own timeline!

Year 4 

In one of the units we study in year 4, we look at The British Empire and the start of the slave trade. We went to the Slavery Museum in Liverpool and learnt about the lives of enslaved people like Oloudah Equiano and how he overcame barriers to become a free man, moved to England and helped abolish slavery.
