At Dallam Community Primary School, history forms an integral part of our curriculum. We bring history to life and immerse our children in realistic experiences both in school and on education visits. We believe that by learning who shaped our past we can better understand the world we live in today and make informed decisions about how we might shape the future.


As part of our history curriculum we use an enquiry-based approach to explore the past and learn about key periods. Within our classrooms, we follow these rich lines of enquiry to help us gain a deeper understanding of our overarching questions. Some of these include; Who are our Pre-Historic ancestors? How did the Victorians change the world? During the children's historical journey throughout our school, they consistently have the opportunity to reflect on previous skills and knowledge and discover how they can draw upon this when learning about new periods in history. Studying history in this way inspires children’s curiosity, encourages them to ask critical questions and enables them to have a better understanding of the society in which they live and that of the wider world.

Whole school history

For Remembrance day 2021 we adopted a whole school approach to not only remember service men and wome, but to also  mark 100 years of the Poppy Appeal. Red poppies have evolved over the last 100 years but remain an enduring symbol of remembrance and a hope for a peaceful future.

Every child in our school made thier own unique poppy, which we then used to create our own Remembrance Tree.
