Discover History

Exit Menu

The aim of Discover History is to offer a unique learning experience for pupils by providing an opportunity to make connections between how people lived in the past and our lives today.

A diverse selection of artefacts from historical periods and world cultures will be available for pupils to investigate. Through the exploration of real objects pupils become aware of various skills that can be used to find out about the past and why history has a relevance to themselves.

Rather than focusing on one particular period, the pupils can engage in a range of fun activities introducing them to different types of historical evidence.
