History at Beaufort is stimulating and engaging. Teachers consistently challenge pupils to think for themselves and draw their own conclusions from the evidence available to them. This means children are curious and ask questions about the past based on their historical knowledge.
Pupils’ sense of time is strengthened through constant exposure to artefacts, other primary sources of evidence and timelines. Teachers are enthusiastic and weave history throughout the curriculum, bringing the past to life with engaging first hand experiences, such as visits, themed days and creative class-based projects. Strong links across the curriculum include English, ICT, Geography, DT and Art. Drama is also used as a vehicle to stimulate thinking, such as with the use of hot seating and role play.
