At St Peter’s, children develop an awareness of the past, using common words and phrases relating to the passing of time and developing a wide vocabulary of everyday historical terms.
They learn where the people and events they study fit within a chronological framework and identify similarities and differences between ways of life in different periods. Children are given opportunities to ask and answer questions, choosing and using parts of stories and other sources to show that they know and understand key features of events. They develop their understanding of some of the ways in which we find out about the past and identify different ways in which it is represented.
"The impact of these Christian values is shown in the exemplary behaviour of the children and their growing empathy and compassion for others."
