History is exciting! It is also at the heart of EVERYTHING we learn. Not only do we teach our history topics in great depth, but we also interweave the subject through our entire curriculum. It is so vital that the children cover many aspects of history through time during all of our learning. On this page you find lots of information about the teaching of history at Norfolk.
