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.
