In History we learnt how the Mayans used sacrifice and offerings.  Year 6


Curriculum Intent

The history curriculum at St Lawrence C of E Primary encourages pupils to ask questions, consider perspectives, look at evidence and think critically.  We want to inspire curiosity about the past through discussion, immersion days, related texts, and source evidence.  Our history education helps to develop knowledge and understanding about Britain’s past and that of the wider world. We help our pupils to understand the process of change, the complexities of people’s lives, the relationships between different groups and diversity in society and the challenges of their time.
