Black History Timeline

History learning begins in EYFS where children consider significant events in their own lives such as birthdays or the arrival of a new sibling. Children in EYFS also observe changes over time such as the change in seasons or watching ice melt. Through studying books such as The Tiger Who Came to Tea, children discuss how life seemed different in the past.

What are Knowledge Organisers?

Our St Paul’s Knowledge Organisers contain the key facts and information that your child needs to have a basic knowledge and understanding of a topic. They also act as a tool to support children in retaining and retrieving knowledge for life-long learning.

Please visit your child’s year group page to see the History Knowledge Organisers for their year group.
