History- Mrs Bryden-Smith

I am really excited about leading history and as my class will tell you, I love popping on a wig and taking the children back in time to learn more about the past. I have always loved history and learning about the past in the U.K and around the world. My favourite historical era is the Restoration (1660) and the Second World War. I also have a love of steam trains!

Learning about the past gives children the skills to make decisions and answer questions using evidence as well as question why different civilisations worked the way they did. I recently learned that the earliest type of receipts were given by the Ancient Egyptians over 5000 years ago!

History is full of interesting people and events that have shaped the world we live in, which is why giving the children the opportunity to delve into the past and bring it to life, helps them to understand how we can make the future better.
