A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots
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 PowerPoint about something you love in history.
Create an eBook about something you love in history.
Create quizzes about events, people or periods of history that you are interested in.
Create a timeline of all of your favourite periods of history.
Make a mini museum at home with different pieces of information, videos, pictures and models that you’ve made and show them to your family.
Watch Horrible Histories clips and research what has been said for accuracy.
Make a time-capsule with a few of today’s items and a newspaper. Store it somewhere safe or bury it in the garden so that either you or someone in the future can see what was happening today.
Diversity and inclusion in History
We believe that our history curriculum should be representative and inclusive of all learners and reflect the ways that Britain has been shaped by its interactions with the wider world.
