Miss Laura Bailey
As a passionate historian, I am delighted to have taken on the role as History lead at Dale Hall. With a degree in history, I have the right mix of enthusiasm and knowledge to make the curriculum exciting and enriching for all pupils. The role of the subject leader is crucial in developing history teaching, learning and resources across the school so as best to support teachers, motivate pupils, monitor progress and achieve consistently high standards.
These are some simple ideas that could be used to help children with history learning at home.
Create a family timeline as far as you can go. How many generations? How many people do you know now? Has anything about your family surprised you?
Research the history of your street/village/town – what is your area famous for? Are there any significant individuals in your area?
Compare and contrast how your local area has changed over time – has it always had the same populations? Have the buildings changed?
Where is your nearest war memorial? Is it small or large? What does that tell you about your area? Do you know of anyone that was involved in any of the wars?
How is history being made right now? How has your local area been affected by the Coronavirus?
