We Are Detectives!
At Spring Grove we provide all children will a high quality, exciting and engaging history education intended to help them understand the history of Britain and that of the wider world. We want our children to be historical detectives, inspired to question the past and how we have come to know about it. We encourage children to think critically about historical events and figures by studying a variety of sources and evidence, developing their own perspective and judgment. We believe that through teaching history in a clear and coherent manor, Spring Grove children will leave our school with a chronological understanding of British history and beyond!
At Spring Grove we seek to inspire our children in history in a range of ways and through a variety of resources, often drawing on cross curricular links. The impact of this teaching can be seen in books and on display but more importantly, can be vocalized by the children. Children enjoy learning about and engaging with history through trips, workshops, investigations, film making, drama and much more. We work to ensure that there is a clear progression in children’s subject knowledge, historical vocabulary and ability to scrutinize various sources which will be built upon until children leave at the end of year 6 and hopefully inspire historical thought throughout life.
