At The Oaks as well as learning historical facts children develop skills of questioning and enquiry. History is taught through topic lessons. In Key Stage One children explore the lives of significant people and learn about how these people have influenced Britain. In Key Stage Two children learn about recent and more distant times in the locality, in Britain and in other parts of the world. Teachers bring history alive for pupils through the use of real sources, recreation of events, drama and art. The teaching and learning of History incorporates the aims of the National Curriculum.
