Welcome to the History page.
Over the four years at Highfield Junior School, your child will study history from the Stone Age to the arrival of William the Conqueror in 1066. As well as looking at what happened, we will be developing understanding of why change has happened and how people felt about it. Studying History gives us an excellent opportunity to develop thinking skills and early analytical skills.
History is great fun! You can bring it alive and support your child’s learning by visiting some of the many museums and historical sites that are available in and around London. These visits can be followed up by looking online at some of the interactive activities available on museum websites. There are also some very good historical novels which you can share with your child – please click on the links below.
Further information can also be found within our IPC pages.
