Summer Topic

 

Our Local History Topic

Our topic will investigate our local area primarily as Historians but with elements of geography skills included.

As historians we will:

Understand why is Cheshire Famous?

Know famous people that come from Cheshire

Know how Cheshire contributed to significant National events

Be able to explain the history of the local village

 

 

As geographers we will investigate:

How geographical features have shaped Cheshire

Locate the county of Cheshire on a UK map

Know towns and cities in Cheshire

 

Children will be encouraged to consider features of the local area and how High Legh's history has shaped the village as we know it today.

 

We will continue reading our class book- Skellig. To enhance our topic we will be reading and discovering historical fiction through Johnny Gillett's Cheshire Folk Tales.
