History Progression at Hopwood

History Around School


Children have the opportunity to learn about the past using our large scale timeline displayed around school. They gain the understanding of when it all happened, what  happened at that time (the key events), how things developed or stayed the same (change and continuity) and the sequence of events.



How can we learn about the past?


We made a short video to remind children how we can be great historians; including some of the primary and secondary sources that can be used and how they can be evaluated.

World War 2 Workshop


Year 6 had a great opportunity to learn about World War 2 including experiencing role play using real life gas masks!



As a significant event in history, remembrance is celebrated by the whole school in our playground. Children from each year group lay their poppy wreath to show their respects. Followed by a poem and 2 minutes silence - we are very proud of those who served us.
