At Junction Farm Primary School, we integrate History into our topic work and throughout other subject areas. Our aims reflect the overall ethos and mission statement of Junction Farm Primary School:-
All of us learning all of the time.
Challenging and achieving.
Making learning fun and engaging.

Children learn about the past in a creative, cross curricular way e.g. Year 5/6 children learning about Britain in World War 2 may use drama to explore how it would feel to be evacuated, they will build air raid shelters in DT, create propaganda posters in Literacy and use the internet to carry out their own research.
Visits are planned to allow children to experience History at first hand e.g. Year 2 children may visit Beamish and see how life was in Victorian times, Year 3 children will visit York to see how we know so much about The Vikings. This year we are exploring more opportunities for visitors to come into school and speak to the children regarding a specific topic or specialism related to that topic.
