What do our pupil's think of History at Park Road? 


“I do enjoy history. I find it fun. We do a range of periods of history and we learn it in an interesting way.”

“My favourite question has been the monarchy.” “‘Who ruled during the British monarchy’ because I enjoy learning about the royals and their life.” “The most interesting thing I learnt about was the monarch of our choice.” “I chose Elizabeth I” “She accomplished multiple things and secured her rule in a time when British monarchy was unstable. She also learnt multiple languages and only died of natural causes instead of a sickness or rebellion like some of her relatives.” (Year 6) 


“I like it because you get to learn about different times.”

“I think I liked when we learnt about the stone age the best because you got to learn about the start and how they made tools out of rocks and that was fun.” “We had a stone age day and we got to see the different rocks and how they were used.” “We cooked our own fish. We put it over a fire. It was amazing.” (Year 5)


“I have learnt about the Ancient Greeks.” “We learnt about the gods and we also did some research about them.” “One of the things I found out was that Hades was the king of the underworld and that Zeus is the king of the gods.” “Hercules had tasks to do to become a god.”  (Year 4)


“I like to look at the past.” “We can look at the past and then see what the future might be like”. (Year 3) 


"In year 1 we were looking at our grandma’s and grandpa’s toys and how they developed.” (year 3) 

Stone Age Enrichment Day 

Yr 3 

To ignite our History topic 'Who first lived in Britain?' Year 3 spent the day in the life of Nomads. We foraged for food, played a hunting game, made our own flour by grinding seeds and also gutted a fish. We finished the day by using flints to build our own fire and toasting bread that was made with the flour we had previously worked so hard to grind. It was delicious! 


"I really enjoyed the whole day being a Nomad. My favourite part was grinding the flour but it was really hard. I learnt that Nomads had to work really hard to stay alive."


"I loved it when we played hunters and then tried the different fruit and vegetables. I also liked grinding the seeds to make flour to make our own bread, it tasted really nice."
