Welcome to our history page
Definition of History is about events that have taken place in the past, whether it is 100 years ago or last week. It is also about people from this country and from other countries around the world. It is about people’s actions, the reasons for them and the evidence that remains of them. It is about changes that have occurred and the causes and consequences of these changes. History is about the relationship between the past and the present. Skills developed through historical enquiry have a wide application to everyday life and historical awareness promotes responsible citizenship.
History at The Divine Mercy Primary school aims to provide pupils with a thorough understanding of the past of both Britain and the wider world. We aim to ensure that children are able to think critically when examining evidence and can develop their own opinions, which they can then back up with their historical knowledge
