History at Forestdale
At Forestdale we want ALL children, including SEND, to be inspired to understand about the past, especially Britain’s past, and how it influences their lives today. Children are encouraged to question, assess evidence and give their opinions about historical events and figures. They are encouraged to think about how history has influenced their lives.
