At Fairlawn, children enjoy different history based topics each year, ranging from Ancient Greece and Rome to Vikings and World War II. We make every effort to develop meaningful links between subjects, with English and Maths often taught within a cross curricular context. Through our links with Islington library we are able to immerse the children in their topics by using reproduction and real artefacts in our classrooms. We also create engaging lessons using drama and immersive events such as Victorian School Day in year 5. To reinforce their learning, theatre groups and visitors bring the subject alive and all children benefit from visiting places of historical interest, including The Museum of London, The British Museum and The Horniman Museum.
