History at South Green Junior School is taught through topic weeks. At the start of Year 3, our children begin to learn about British History starting with the Stone Age, through to modern day history in Year 6. Our curriculum also includes learning about ancient civilisations abroad.
There are many websites and places you could explore with your children at home to encourage them to explore the past and how people existed and how societies evolved. See the links below:
Places to visit:
Nearby, you could visit the Cater Museum in Billericay High Street or the Essex Police Museum in Chelmsford to find out about local History or Crime and Punishment over the year.
In London, there are many historical places to visit and explore from museums to palaces and parks.
Other places to explore on your travels would be Leeds Castle, Hever Castle, Stonehenge, Jorvik Centre, Sutton Hoo in Suffolk and Warwick Castle. These are all great days out, including lots of activities for children to do.
If you visit any interesting historical websites or places, please let us know by emailing the school admin for the attention of the History Co-ordinator, we may be able to add your ideas to our webpage.
