History

Sequence of Learning

At Walkern, we take a hands-on approach to learning history.  Learning about the past is an important part of the curriculum, but learning occurs best through a variety of mediums. We teach through video, images, lectures, discussions and with guest speakers from the historical society.  The children cover a broad range of content, dating back to 500,000BC and studies of early peoples and carrying through up to modern history and discussions about the future.  We take every opportunity to bring our history learning alive so children can be submerged into the concept of the past and benefit from first hand experiences.
