We are not makers of history. We are made by history.

Mr Thomas is our History Lead and he has a love of the past. Please contact him via the office with any queries or questions.
History at Bignold is about finding out what life was like. This includes local, national and international history. The curriculum has been built around the study of people and how it effects people both locally and nationally. The curriculum has been designed so that children are revisiting learning and it enables them to use this embedded knowledge and vocabulary in a range of contexts. We aim to develop historians who are curious and intereseted in the world around them.
Our aim is that history is taught beyond the classrom for our children and we use the local area for trips and as a teaching resource.
