At Fair Furlong Primary School, the children are given the skills to make sense of the world and the different time periods. During their first experiences, the children will be taught about differences between artefacts such as toys from the past and present and taught to sequence events and periods in time. As the children progress in their understanding, they will be taught the skills to investigate, ask questions, understand and make comparisons with aspects of life in the past as well as understanding where the period studied fits chronologically. They will be given the opportunity to look at different primary and secondary sources of evidence and assess their effectiveness and reliability in helping them to make conclusions about past life.
