History at St Albans
At St Albans we follow the Programmes of Study from the National Curriculum and teach through a topic based approach. We use Key Skills to assess progress and attainment. We ensure that throughout school history allows our children to compare and contrast, to examine how and why things have changed, to learn about historical characters and improve their research skills.
The children are provided with many opportunities to use both primary and secondary sources for historical enquiry. Where possible we also provide first hand opportunities and experiences from field w ork visits to bringing historical specialists in to deliver workshops.
