History

We teach History at FJS because everyone needs to know where they have come from, and why their lives are as they are. History builds an understanding of a shared past, with knowledge and understanding of events and people who shaped our world, and when those events took place.

The historical skills of enquiry and investigation, using sources as evidence and becoming aware of the veracity and reliability of those sources, is an important foundation to becoming a confident, knowledgeable and successful modern citizen. History enables children to learn how to generate effective and probing questions, and have the skills to seek and find reliable answers.

A good knowledge of History gives you the wisdom to put your own life in a broader context, and know what you might be capable of in the future, by knowing what people have done in the past. Without a knowledge of History, your world is very small.
