At St Augustine's, History is fundamental to our wider curriculum, offering pupils the opportunities to learn about the locality in which they live as well as the world beyond them. Our aim is to provide an education that inspires a curiosity to know more about the world and its people from the past, as well as the here and now. We aim to encourage children to have a deeper understanding of how and where people live and why this is so, which enables them to appreciate the diversity of our world and develop their own perspectives and judgements over time. We have a strong focus on enquiry skills so our children become equipped with a solid foundation on which to build, so they are 'secondary ready' when it is time to say goodbye to St Augustine's.

First World War Centenary
Our children have commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War. We have read poetry, researched local war heroes, created beautiful art and much more. Most importantly, our children had the opportunity to say 'Thank you' to all the service men, women and animals who gave their lives, so that we can live the life that we have today. Taking part in local remembrance services in our locality was a wonderful end to our learning.
