'The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future.' Theodore Roosevelt
At Cippenham Infant School, we aim to enrich the children’s awareness of the past and how it has shaped the society we live in today. Pupils should learn the significance of people and events from the past and how these are placed within a chronological timeline. Through high-quality teaching, children should be able to compare their own lives and experiences to those of the past, finding similarities and differences between the two.
We want to provide opportunities for the children to discover and learn about history through creative and exciting ways to encourage curiosity and a passion for the subject.
