At John Hampden School, we believe in delivering an experiential and rich history curriculum. It is a subject whose importance and benefit to children cannot be overstated. History has the ability to create an understanding of our world today through the myriad fascinating worlds of the past, which automatically provokes questions from pupils.
We shape our topics to inspire a natural curiosity into the development of tools every pupil needs in order to be able to express their thoughts and positively engage with the world around them.
We aim to bring every historical period we study to life through Viking Days, Egyptian Days, World War One workshops and Great Fire of London model re-enactments to name a few! This ensures our children are excited and curious whilst also equipped with a rich knowledge of the time they are studying.
