Learning from relatives and friends - learning from our local buildings
Below you can see in Year 6 we investigated what connections our family has to the wars of the last century.
The monument in town can teach us a lot about the past and it can help us appreciate our British Values. Helpers came along and shared their family stories of service from the two world wars.
History in our community
Year 6 History Ambassadors visit the church Welcome In.
They had a lovely time finding about memories of church and school.
History Fieldwork Y6
Our task was to visit King’s Garden
-which is a park opened over one hundred years ago in 1913-
and assess how much it has or has not changed; how that history is shown in the park and what visitors think about it.
We shall consider our findings back at school and produce a report and display about this.
Below are photos we took during out visit.
Year 3: Roman Soldier Visit
Our History Ambassadors continue to give up their time to act as Chronology Buddies with pupils from Year 1 and reception.
Year 6 History Ambassadors act as experts for our classes.
Here they are as members of The Sioux from North America.
They answered questions and gave support in our group work.
You do a brilliant job
History Ambassadors work throughout the year with younger pupils. They help run History Club and its library.
They use jigsaws and games to help with Infant children as well.
A seasons jigsaw is a great way of developing a sense of time with reception children.
Memory games help develop noticing skills .
Hands on History Exhibition
Year 6 History Ambassadors hosted an exhibition for our community about our local history. We discussed their memories of school days and what Southport used to be like when they were young.
Use the link below to see the history elements in our British Values section...especially those to do with all our great remembrance activities and also our Grandparent Day.
Learning from our community. Huw's grandmother came and told about her family history which included refugees in the 1920s and an RAF pilot in World War Two. Mr Carver is also shown in the photos below giving a history tour of our church.
The Southport Sleuth competition encouraged children to talk to their relatives and learn about the history of their hometown. They had to be independent and work as detectives to find out about the past.
Below are the winners from across the different year groups as well as our display board.
Below is a slide show of the history that could be seen around the school on just one day...July 4th
We are so proud of our Australia competition winners. It was great to read about the history of this country, especially the Aborigine culture. It was also great to read about the history behind the Commonwealth Games.
History Ambassadors are keeping busy. They have been visiting the Infant Classes in historical costumes so that the children can ask questions about who they are supposed to be and what life was like in the past. Year 2 pupils come on Thursday to work with the Chronology Buddies and get a sticker for giving answers to questions about how a town grew from the Stone Age to now. They do other things too like castle jigsaws and spot the mistake in history pictures.
