Hello and welcome to our History Curriculum page!
History is all around us and the children at Westglade love to learn new and exciting things! They are keen researchers and especially enjoy receiving books from the ELS filled with facts about their topic. You can help your child learn all about History by talking to them about things you're interested in, sharing a historical book or even visiting local historical places!
