History enables children to gain a better understanding of their world, how it has evolved and to have an appreciation of the world we live in today. Children study a variety of historical periods including ancient civilisation and British history from the Stone Age to World War Two as well as their local history.
As part of their learning, children use a range of sources such as written, art, artefacts, music and many more. Recently, we have included the use of virtual reality headsets in the classroom as a way for children to experience the past.
Throughout their time at Burlington, children will take part in history themed days where they will have the opportunity to dress up, take part in authentic activities and have visits from experts.
There are also many history trips such as the Victoria and Albert Museum and Kensington Palace.
