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.

Home Learning



Phase What are children learning this half term? How can I support my child's learning at home?

Early Years (Nursery and Reception) 

We are learning to talk about events in sequence. Encourage your child to talk about the things they have done in their day using language like first, next and then. Can they draw a series of pictures to show what happened when?

Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2) 

Y1 – The Home Front 

Y2 - WWII 

Can you show all of your learning about this area of history in one place? This could be on a piece of paper or on a screen. You can show this with pictures, words or sentences.  


You could even show all of your amazing learning by creating models if you have the materials (e.g. cardboard/boxes) around the house and your parents say it is ok to use.  

Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) 

Y3 – The Blitz 

Y4 – Rationing 

 Year 3 – Create a poster showing all of your learning using this video to help you.  




Year 4 – Can you create a recipe using food rations that were available at the time? It would be great to see photos of your meal if you are able to make it.  

Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6) 

Y5 – Leaders and Locals 

Y6 – WWII Concentration and Liberation  


Can you create a presentation to a family member/pet/toy? 


If you are in Y5, please use this video clip to help you.
