Croftlands Junior School Ulverston
Croftlands School
Most of our History work is taught as a class topic with cross-curricular themes. The children are provided with opportunities to investigate a range of historical sources including pictures, artefacts, fieldwork, buildings, site visits and museum reconstructions. This enables them to recognise the importance of evidence in piecing together knowledge of the past. Children are also encouraged to consider history from different perspectives i.e. the lives of the rich & poor, settled people and invaders, rulers and citizens.

Wherever possible they will learn about history by looking at the local area, the changes that have taken place over time and the effect this has had on the local environment and the economy.
