Savile Park Primary School

Headteacher: Mrs J Boylan

History

 

History is planned and taught as part of our creative, cross curricular approach to learning. During their work in history, children develop, use and apply the national curriculum key skills across a range of contexts.

During their time at Savile Park, they will have the opportunity to learn about people, places and key events at different times in the past, from The Ancient Egyptians, Stone Age, Anglo-Saxons, Romans, local history of Halifax and what life was like for children during World War Two.

Educational visits form a vital part of engaging children in History and examples of visits and workshops include Cliffe Castle in Keighley as part of the Stone Age dig, Halifax Piece Hall and Shibden Hall as part of the local history of Halifax, Bradford Media Museum as part of music through the ages and Technology through time, unpacking evacuee suitcases at The Imperial War Museum, a day in role at a mummification workshops and special visitors coming in to share personal histories of the local area and parents and grandparents talking about toys and their visits to the seaside when they were younger.
