Our Vision for History at St Teresa's

At St Teresa's, our children are historians. Our children learn history as an understanding of our past and how it can shape our futures. Our curriculum is full of topics and themes which will inspire awe and wonder.

They drive children to ask thought provoking, meaningful questions: they explore and use their historical knowledge of concepts and processes to draw conclusions.

History lessons at St Teresa's help children gain a deep understanding into the complexity of people's lives and the process of change, then and now, identifying their own identities and the challenges of their time.

Black History Month 2022

During Black History month we studied historical figures and the impact they made on our current world. We then created poems like Benjamin Zephaniah, created art like Jacob Lawrence, wrote down our dreams like Martin Luther King and using computers like Katherine Johnson.
