At Llysfaen Primary School, History is used to stimulate the children's interest and understanding about the life of people who lived in the past.
We teach children a sense of chronology and through this, they develop a sense of identity and a cultural understanding based on their historical heritage. Thus, they learn to value their own and other people's cultures in modern multi-cultural Britain and by considering how people lived in the past, they are better able to make their own life choices today.
In our school, History makes a significant contribution to citizenship education by teaching about how Britain developed as a democratic society. We teach children to understand how events in the past have influenced our lives today; we also teach them to investigate these past events and, by so doing, to develop the skills of enquiry, analysis, interpretation and problem-solving.
We are not just a Primary School...
We are in fact a Time Machine!
