History

History at Gorsemoor is enthusiastically taught throughout the school; it is even taught in Nursery and the Foundation stage where it forms part of the knowledge and understanding of the world area of their curriculum.


History is taught through Cornerstones where the children use a multimedia approach to study the units. They also have the opportunity to take part in themed days, visit places of interest related to their particular study unit as well as having visitors into school who bring some of the History Study units alive.

Here are Year 6 experiencing a Cornerstones Memorable Day as ARP wardens in 2016.
