“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
At Warter School, we believe that the benefits from gaining a deeper understanding of history are far reaching.
Through history, we can learn how past societies, systems, ideologies, governments, cultures and technologies were built, how they operated, and how they have changed. The rich history of the world helps us to paint a detailed picture of where we stand today.
Developing a knowledge of history has the ability to create a bridge between today’s world and the many fascinating civilisations of the past, such as Ancient Greece, Anglo-Saxon Britain and the Vikings.
Enquiries form the basis of our history lessons. A good question will make clear not only the substantive focus of the enquiry but also the particular second-order or disciplinary concept that our children are dealing with.
