Year 4 – History

What did the Vikings leave behind? Children researched their legacy and how this has impacted our lives today.

Year 6 – History

After Year 6’s visit from Roger Nowell (Justice of the Peace for Pendle) last week, we have begun to analyse the evidence of the witch trial to help us decide if the verdict was indeed the correct one! @DimensionsCC #Pendlewitches

Year 6 – History

This week, year 6 have learned about the ‘Pendle Witch’ Trials that took place in Lancashire in 1612 in a drama workshop delivered by Mr Fellows. We found the activities extremely exciting and informative. We now know about some of the main people involved and the reasons why they were accused of using witchcraft. #Dimensionscurriculum #Pendlewitches #History

Year 4 – History

Year 4  have been learning about how the Saxon King, Harold Godwinson became king after King Edward the Confessor. The children worked in groups to put their claim to the throne forward to the Witan council as we have found out there were 4 claimants to the throne after Edward died.

Year 5 – English/History

Year 5 spent an afternoon with the wonderful Alex Fellows, diving into the world of the Romans through role play. They created battle formations, acted out a Roman market and even recreated the story of the name that no Roman wanted to hear… Boudicca. #history #drama #theromans

Year 6 – History

Year 6 enjoyed looking at Mrs Cockroft’s artefacts to help them understand what life was like during World War 2. They looked at her grandad’s war medals and learned about the ship he was on that was bombed by the Nazi’s in 1940. The Lancastria was the worst maritime disaster in British history, but Winston Churchill didn’t want the public to know about it at the time. #RMSLancastria #Year6 #History

Year 3 – History

We have started 2024 with a visit from Alex Fellows this week. Children took part in the Benin Era workshop where they used drama to explore what life was like living in the Benin Period.

Year 4 – History

This week, Year 4 have been looking at the history of slavery. We started by looking at what slavery is and some of the reasons behind it. The children created posters to show this.

 

Year 6 – History

As part of our Time Team unit, Year 6 have been looking at landmarks in our local area to see how they have changed. We’ve studied maps to see how Great Horton has grown and looked at the school log books to see how school has changed over the years. #DimensionsCC #Year6
