Here is the long-term overview for History at Redwood this year. It outlines what the children of all year groups will be learning and how. 

History Long Term Overview 2021-22

Here are Year 6 at the Great Central Railway, Loughborough in September 2021. They visited as part of their History topic on The Blitz, when they learned about World War 2. Here, you can see them in air raid shelters and also wearing gas masks, in case of an attack. During their day, they also met Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister who led us the victory.



Our Year 5 children have been learning about the Anglo-Saxons this autumn. Where did they come from? How did they invade? Did King Arthur really fight against them and did he actually exist? Our displays have evolved as learning has taken place. Next, they will be building Anglo-Saxon houses based on real-life archaelogical findings. Did you know Repton (not far from here) was the mighty Anglo-Saxon capital of Mercia, one of the seven great kingdoms?!
