History

Why is History important?
History is important because it helps children to understand and interpret the past, and therefore, the present. Through history, children develop a deeper cross-cultural awareness and understanding of their own and others’ heritage, through looking at evidence and asking and answering questions. In History, we can analyse successes and failures, which, in turn, teaches us to learn from our mistakes.
