Our Learning – History


At Ardley Hill Academy, we learn History through the creative curriculum. This means that all Key Stages have a topic which they study for a term and through this topic they learn geography, history, art, D&T and some English skills too.

During the topics, the children learn about significant individuals from the past, changes both within and before their living memory, significant historical events, specific time periods and also elements of local history.


What you can do to help.

In order to extend your child’s history learning at home, you could:

  • Research your family history.
  • Choose a king or queen from the past and research them.
  • Visit museums and discuss the artefacts.
  • Research the history of Dunstable and the surrounding area.
