History is at the heart of many of our Curricular projects at Fir Tree and through our learning in lessons, we encourage, promote and develop our sense of time; an awareness of change, within and beyond our time and an appreciation of the world we live in (of climates, physical features, people and their culture). Essentially, History helps us to develop a deeper awareness of the past and how the has an impact on our lives today.  


We are proud of our exciting, creative and child-led curriculum and the examples of children's learning showcases the depth of their knowledge, enthusiasm and sense of pride in their work. Some of our History-centred projects include: Ancient Egyptians, the Ancient Maya, the Ancient Greeks, local history studies, Lest We Forget, the Victorians, the Tudors, Early Settlers, the Romans and the Stone Age.
