We promote social and emotional development in History by...

  • Children have the ability to work in groups and complete problem-solving activities. Children are expected to participate and work together cooperatively to complete tasks. (British Value: Mutual Respect and Tolerance)
  • Exploring social development historically through local, European and non-European studies (British Value: Democracy)
  • Questions and debates are encouraged using scenarios relating to various events through History, encouraging children to cooperate and resolve conflict. (British Value: Democracy, Mutual Respect and Tolerance)
