At Greenleas we aim to foster an interest in the world around them and it’s past.  The study of History makes a valuable contribution to their understanding of all aspects of life giving a sense of identity and heritage.  The children learn facts about local, national and world history throughout the key stages.  We encourage them to think like historians and ask questions which will enable them to compare and contrast within different periods of history.
