History is the study of the past. The study of history focuses on key people and events that have had a lasting impact on the world around us, helps us make sense of these events and how it may affect our lives today.
At St Michael's History is challenging, interesting and motivating with the aim of allowing children to talk enthusiastically about what they have learnt, with a clear understanding of historical events and how these have impacted upon today's society. The vibrant and varied curriculum ensues that pupils understand key historical concepts and can confidently articulate the place history has in their own lives, in society and in he modern world.
A Historian is a person who studies the past. They are good detectives and make inferences using sources of evidence. They are curious, analytical and think critically about the past.
