Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

History

History At Berkswich

 

The study of our history is a way to put the pieces of the past together and show how we came to be where we are today. History has a stuffy reputation, but it does not have to be like that. History should enrich and delight, since it allows pupils to explore, question and to understand the past and its impact. 

 

Through each unit, we hope to:

 

  • create an overarching story which encourages historical thinking and enables pupils to make links between one period of history and another.
  • inspire pupils to ask and answer big questions about the challenges at various times, similarities and change 
  • provide opportunities to interrogate evidence and raise new questions
  • be aware of the “Villains, Victories, Values, Lifestyle and Legacy” of each period of time studied, in order to more easily compare across different time periods
