In History at LDSM, we aim to inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past.


History is a practical and engaging subject, which motivates and inspires our children to gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world.


Through the study of individuals, societies, cultures and countries within which they live - and those within the wider world - historyenables pupils to gain awareness of what happened in the past and reasons for these events. History helps our children understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, diversity of societies, the relationships between different groups as well as the changes and challenges of their own time. 


We achieve this through a variety of different topics including: Stone Age, Romans, Ancient Egyptians, Tudors, Victorians, Ancient Greeks, Mayans and World War II. Children are encouraged to think of history as a journey of discovery where there can be more than one interpretation of evidence and where parameters can, and do, change as new findings come to light.
