History

At Parc Eglos, our intent is to allow every child to develop their historical knowledge and understanding, giving the children a sense of their own identity within the current time and place.

Children will be recognised as individuals who have their own ideas, thoughts and opinions.  We intend to fight the stereotypes of past events and people, using all our voices to debate, argue and confer about our ideas. 

History and chronology will be taught through enquiry based learning, answering questions about past influences and its effect on the present day.  We intend to use our local environment where possible; focusing on key historical figures from Cornwall and visits to local sites of historical interest.  Our aim is to develop a culture of historical discussion, enhancing critical thinking skills, drawing on the understanding of the evidence presented to them and beginning to understand human experiences and its effect on our world as we know it.
