Fantastic entries!!!! 100hp

A huge well done to Jasper in 6RW for his interview with his Nan. It was lovely to see them keeping in contact and sharing what they both know of Chesswood and the areas surrounding. Did you know that there used to be a swimming pool in Heene Road or that our school field was a stables? 




Another big well done goes to Buddy in 6RW for his interview with a family friend. It was really interesting to hear about schooling for her - how would you feel sharing a class with children of really mixed ages? She told Buddy that a big difference from her childhood to childhood today was having more freedom to play in areas such as the Downs that had less traffic nearby when she was growing up.



Due to lockdown we are going to extend this activity until the end of February half term - it would be so nice to see more of your interviews so that we can get an idea of what our town used to be like and how it compares to the places our relatives grew up in. See the activities below for ideas on what you can make.

Welcome to History at Chesswood

To explore the Chesswood Art and Design Curriculum content; see examples of all the great learning that goes on and to access knowledge organisers, please use the menu options. 

The history curriculum at Chesswood seeks to help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. It inspires pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past. Teaching equips pupils to ask perceptive questions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. History helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges of their time.
