History Curriculum

The Pochin School is currently constructing this curriculum page. If you require further information please contact the school office.

The curriculum at The Pochin School this year may look slightly different to the plans below. This is due to staff members adjusting topics taught to support pupils/ classes who have been affected by Covid this academic year. The plans and topics are regularly reviewed to meet the needs of our pupils.

Enrichment Activities

At The Pochin School, we aim to bring the curriculum alive!  Take a look at our Ancient Egyptian Day when the children in Years 3, 4 and 5 had a visit from Queen Cleopatra and her scribe, Sati.  Throughout the day, the children experienced mummifying a pharaoh, market trading, pyramid building and storytelling!

Family Projects

We encourage our children and families to work together on projects linked to our main curriculum focus of the half term.  Here are some fabulous examples of what our children have done at home to consolidate their understanding for a recent topic on the Stone Age to the Iron Age:
