History at Sir Henry Fermor

 

There have been some exciting new changes in history at Sir Henry Fermor this year! History is now taught discretely from geography as its own separate subject, and is now being taught throughout the year. We have developed a comprehensive curriculum so that our students gain a thorough understanding not only of the events of the past, but of chronology and how historical events and eras influence and impact the next ones.

 

In history lessons, students will use a wide selection of primary and secondary sources to help them understand the past.  This will help them gain a rich understanding of how people in past civilizations lived - which we will compare with our civilization today. Students will learn to compare sources to gain a complete understanding of an era or event, and will be encouraged to make connections between their learning in history to what they've learned in other subjects.  This will build critical thinking skills, which will serve them well throughout their lives.
