History

Subject Intent

History at Woodfield is designed to get children to think about cause and effect. By looking at themes over time we can see how societies and civilizations have evolved and influenced the modern day. Children will be expected to employ critical thinking and question the validity behind the research and sources. Children will understand the heritage and history of the local area and how they tie into more global events. We want children to understand the chronology of the world’s history and that events even though separate, one person’s history can run concurrently alongside another’s.
