History

History involves the gathering and study of historical evidence from a wide variety of sources.
The National Curriculum places particular emphasis upon the interpretation, evaluation and comparison of source material which often includes information gathered in written, visual and statistical form. The increasing availability of computers in this school has enhanced this approach.

Links with other subjects are strongly emphasised, particularly in the areas of English, Geography, Science, Art and Technology. Children are encouraged to develop their ability to locate and extract information, to detect bias, to analyse and to construct logical arguments. This is designed to promote a deeper understanding of contemporary society by showing how it has developed through the ages.

Year 5 Take on the Great North Museum

 

Take one Tyrannosaurus Rex, mix in a few Romans, some ancient Greek artefacts, a giant spider crab and a trip to the Ancient Egyptian afterlife, and you might be forgiven for thinking you were on the latest 'Night at the Museum' set!

But add in 80 Year 5 pupils and a very hot, cramped metro ride and a few valiant parent helpers, and you soon realise you are on our latest excursion to the Hancock Museum.

With work books in hand, Wellfield practically took over the whole museum for a few hours in a desperate attempt to complete every last question and locate each artefact before their rival groups.

Pupils delved into the realms of Egyptian mummification, explored the world of Roman Britain and investigated our Living Planet. They carved their initials on Hadrian's Wall, studied the habits of local wildlife and had their hearts compared to feathers in preparations for their trip to the Egyptian afterlife. After hours of tireless searching, it was an exhausted troop of pupils and teachers that made their way back from the Haymarket to West Monkseaton crammed into one metro carriage with empty packed lunch bags but brains bursting with extra knowledge!

Have a look at the photos on the website to get more of a flavour of our Year 5 trip to the Hancock Museum!

Year  7 visit to Segedunum

Year 7 are visiting Segedunum this week.    7O was the first class to visit on Wednesday, with 7H and 7P visiting on Thursday.

We took the Metro to Segedunum where we were met by Lesley who trained us to become Roman Soldiers.   Mrs Pattinson modeled the latest in Roman fashion. The childnre learned how to charge using a spear and a shield,   they polished their shields and learned a Roman Oath,  and were able to try on some Roman clothing.  Finally we were able to see some 2000 year old Roman artifacts, including a spear head and a stone used in battle.
